Nature is that thing that surrounds us and that has immense power, both of creation and destruction. In the blink of an eye, this force can destroy everything in its path with a storm, an earthquake or a tsunami. However, to create a new animal or plant species, it takes time, and it can take millions of years to develop it, because this new being has to be perfect.
It seems that sometimes nature cares about the beauty of its creations, and endows them with bright colors and striking textures. But sometimes, it prioritizes functionality and ends up creating pretty weird things that we could easily classify as monsters.
But the truth is that nature never stops showing us how powerful it is and all the wonders it can do. In a way we can say that she is a bit presumptuous, but she always has something to surprise us with and we are very grateful for that.
And we want to surprise you with a collection of photographs that show precisely the incredible power of nature. Check out.
