20 Powerful Photos That Prove Nature Is No Playground

Despite the fact that nature has been consistently shrinking since the Ice Age, with animals and plants becoming smaller and smaller, it still remains something unpredictable and powerful, that doesn’t obey the rules. We see it in the resilience of plants growing in the most unexpected places, a giant ancient shark tooth, or lava waterfalls. Nature never fails to inspire awe and thrill in us.

Bright Side collected 20 admirable stunts of nature, both big and small, and wants to share them with you.
