One Word Sunday is a blogging challenge hosted by Debbie Smyth at Travel With Intent.  This week’s challenge is Ugly.

Here are two photos that fit the bill. Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. If the komodo dragon or whale shark or some reading this post was judging, I’d be the ugly one. 😄

A resting komodo dragon in Komodo National Park on Rinca Island, Indonesia. The ranger who was the guide for the hike through the park was brave enough to get in front of this resting dragon to take the photograph.

Oslob Municipality near the southern tip of the island of Cebu in the Philippines is one of several locations around the world that gives tourists the opportunity to swim with whale sharks.

The whale sharks here are generally between 25 ft and 35 ft (about 7.5m to 10.5m) in length. They weigh…a lot.


I would never call a komodo dragon or whale shark ugly to their face.
