Out of the 988 featured pictures on Wikimedia Commons in 2012, the five below were voted the best of the best. I haven't perused all 988 photos, but the 5 below are certainly worthy:

1. A pair of European bee-eaters. The female awaits the offering which the male will make.File:Pair of Merops apiaster feeding.jpg - Wikimedia Commons

2. A long filament of solar material erupted out of the Sun's atmosphere
