12+ Times Mother Nature Tripped Us Up

Diply 6 Sep 2018

Have you ever thought about how bomb Mother Nature is? A true queen, my friends — she blows my mind.

Like, nature in general is crazy. And maybe I just think about it too much, but come on, you can't say you've never been at a loss for words from a gorgeous view, or something as common as a really cool bug.

Is it maybe just me? Maybe my nerd is showing? Just trust me.

1. You see life, uh, finds a way

Reddit | Messin_About

Yup, that's a tree growing out of a stump. Which means that the tree is REALLY meant to be there. Like, I think it has earned the right or something. LET THE TREE BE!

2. Honestly, I could make an entire post about trees and how they shouldn't be messed with

Reddit | MopsikCZE

Because here's one taking over a fence. Trees don't take no for an answer when we intrude on their space, and I respect that.

3. So I did not know this, and now wombats are my fave

Reddit | onylooo

And it's so they can mark their territory. Which means that they are kinda little rebels with their pooping ways. And that's something I never thought I would say.

4. This mushroom looks like it's out of a fairy tale, and I want it to stay perfect forever

Reddit | PACHNAR

I have accepted that it is somehow more perfect than I will ever be, which is weird. But not wrong at all.

5. This watermelon looks like it was squeezed out of a tube

Reddit | ItsDeTiix

That's the only way to explain it, I don't know why it's just so...long. And weird. I know it'll still taste the same, BUT STILL.

6. Something about sand not being white makes me uncomfortable

Reddit | KarmannosaurusRex

Like, physically uncomfortable. We ALL know that sand gets crazy hot in the sun, but black sand?! That would burn up your feet so fast!

7. A mushroom by any other name...would smell as sweet?

Reddit | TheMightyNyco

This mushroom looks more like a rose than an actual rose does. I don't know how that's possible, but Mother Nature made it so.

8. WHAT CAUSES THIS MAGIC??? ? But seriously, what's the science behind this?

Reddit | smasxer

And does it always happen? In a month from now I'll be on a plane to England, and I plan on seeing it for myself. WHAT CAUSES THE RAINBOW CIRCLE?

9. You could wipe out an entire family of vampires with this bad boy

Reddit | purple_spotted_cow

Or make someone preparing Italian food very happy. Either way, this clove of garlic might be big, but it's sure as heck useful.

10. So, what do you see — one dog, or two?

Reddit | Embeast

Because I see that this doggo's ear somehow looks EXACTLY like his face. It's like Mother Nature knows there's no such thing as too many doggos.

11. Well, this flower is more romantic than I am, so that's cute

Reddit | ducksanducksanducks

If someone ever gave this to me I would melt. But I would be just as happy if I bought it for myself, truly.

12. It's a wonder that this caterpillar is still alive because I would 100% not see it 

Reddit | TerranOrSolaran

It's such a little sneaky fella! Which I guess is good because of nature and all, but also it is huge.

13. OKAY, does this not look like it should be Sulley's arm from Monsters, Inc.???

Reddit | Fatal_Edge

But no, this is just a man's arm covered in dust. And I am shook about it. SHOOK.

14. I still haven't decided if moths scare me or not because I mean, look at this thing

Reddit | rockblasties

That cannot be a moth — it has to be a bird. Except birds have lungs and moths do not...the more you knooowwww!

15. If you ever need decorating inspo, Mother Nature knows what's up

Reddit | Reddit

No matter how hard you try, you will never pull off a gradient as well as she does. SHE IS QUEEN!

16. And finally some wee little bananas that are so cute they'll make your day

Reddit | ASMRtoastercoaster

Or at least, they made mine. But I'm all about the adorable things to spruce up my life.
