2 Flamingo Fuzz
Another Reddit user posted this photograph and wrote, “The fuzz on my sock looks like a flamingo.” This snap is mundane yet fascinating at the same time.
We wish we could hug that little flamingo, but it would probably disintegrate in our arms.
3 Kitty Shadow
Someone shared this photograph on Reddit and wrote, “My black cat looks like my white cat’s shadow.” We had to do a double-take on this one.
It really does look like a shadow!
4 Not An Inch To Spare
Talk about a tight squeeze! This semi-truck barely cleared the height restrictions in this tunnel.
One minor bump and everything would come to a screeching halt. Yikes!
5 Batter Up
This kid probably had no idea how blessed he was when the man sitting next to him sprang into action.
He blocked that bat like a champ and saved a little boy from a trip to the ER. Not to mention the years of therapy that child would’ve needed before ever going to a ballgame again.
6 Shark Bite
This lady is so lucky that a shark just took a little nibble off her back and didn’t chomp down.
This could have been so much worse. Plus, she’s going to have one tough-looking scar!
7 Safety First
A construction worker counted his lucky stars when a hardhat saved his life.
He could’ve had more than a minor bump on his noggin had he not worn it. “Safety First” is a thing for a reason.
8 A Balancing Act
This image is both lucky and unlucky. It’s lucky for the person who closed the cabinet before the dishes fell out.
Yet, it’s going to be unlucky for whoever comes along and opens that door next.
9 Perfect Parking
This person probably had no idea that they literally parked in the perfect parking spot when they arrived.

10 Lucky Find
This photo found its way to Reddit with the caption, “Found these 110(?) year old Crayolas in the back of a family secretary desk. The pack still has the crayons.” That’s practically a historical artifact.

That’s one expensive carrot!
15 Saved Keys
There’s a one-in-a-million chance that this key chain would have saved these keys from falling through a grate, saving them from uncertain doom.

When he opened the bottom drawer, he stumbled upon a hidden treasure.
17 Near Disaster

It doesn’t get much better than that. Bonus pizza for everyone!
20 Beat The Odds
Sometimes things don’t go as planned, and it doesn’t always end well. However, sometimes all the odds are beaten, to everyone’s delight! The passengers aboard the US Airways jet on January 15, 2009 could all tell you about the incredible luck that smiled on them that day, when a flock of birds knocked out both of the plane’s engines.
That day, when everyone on board the plane thought it was the end, Captain Sully Sullenberger amazed everyone by landing the plane in the frozen waters of the Hudson River off Manhattan Island in New York. Thanks to him, all 150 passengers of the plane survived!
21 The Biggest Winner
This has got to be one of the luckiest lottery players of all time. Every single scratch-off presented a winning number.

Luckily, only one tire went over the edge before the vehicle came to a stop.

If they had parked just a few inches to the right, they would have driven right over that protruding pole.

Yet another car missed being crushed by a tree because fate intervened.
Who would’ve thought that the trunk would be at the right angle to fall perfectly behind that automobile?

We don’t blame those people in the photo for marveling at the driver’s good luck.
That sign just missed turning that car into a pancake.

It’s actually kind of creepy if you ask us.
45 Red Moonbow
Someone shared this cool photo on Reddit and wrote, “This red only rainbow I saw at midnight in Finland.” Is this good luck? It could be taken as a sinister sign.
We’d hate to see what kind of leprechaun might be found at the bottom of a red rainbow!
Another Reddit member posted this snap along with the caption, “The sun shining through my fish tank aligned perfectly on each knob.” Our imagination is running wild with this one.
It looks like some sort of color-coded spell that could open a portal to an alternate universe.

54 Apple Tree Surprise
A Reddit user posted this photograph and said, “This tree in my neighborhood that has 1 branch of an apple tree and the rest is a normal tree.” Apparently, this is more than just good luck.
This occurrence is called grafting. Someone fused that apple branch, and it became part of the other tree. This concludes our dendrology lesson of the day. Also, dendrology means the study of trees. Don’t you feel smart?

This person used up all of their luck for a lifetime when they narrowly missed stepping directly onto a rusty nail.

The owner of this vehicle must have been so relieved that this tree didn’t crash into their car.
It’s astounding to see just how lucky they were in this case. That tree could have totaled their automobile.
61 The Best Seat
