Stunning Photos of Beautiful Oddities and Forces of Nature

 Have you ever sat down by your window during a thunderstorm, and felt the sky boom violently, as flashes of white consume the world with each strike of lightning? Amid the sound and chaos of the sky, droplets of water pitter-patter against your window, gently sliding down the glass, each drop rapidly racing against the others towards no particular end or purpose. In these moments, we see the duality of Mother Nature, a harbinger of madness and chaos, but at the same time delicate and fragile, filled with oddities and bewildering beauties.

Everywhere you turn, if you look closely enough, you’ll get a brief glimpse of strange powerful things that only nature could spring to life against all odds, whether its a tiny blade of grass that manages to grow through a floor of cement, desperate to just feel the sunlight, or the occasional double-headed strawberry, a bizarre but pleasant surprise in your garden. Just take a look at these 18 pictures, that bring to life all of the awe and wonder of nature.
