We often forget how powerful nature can truly be. From animals to plants to the weather, we often forget the strength of Mother Nature until it flexes its impressive muscles at us. But when it does, it leaves quite the impression on our forgetful minds. From silly animals with quite the crazy personalities to plants doing the darnedest things, to, of course, the most obvious of the bunch, any time a natural disaster or phenomenon occurs before our eyes, nature is constantly amazing, confusing, inspiring and surprising us. Here are 25 examples of nature at work that people managed to capture in photos.
1. This squirrel proves that he literally couldn’t care less about what people want after photobombing this couple’s picture. The couple, who probably left their camera on a rock with a timer in order to take a romantic photo with the scenic mountain landscape in the background, were left laughing after this little furry friend decided to join in. The adorable squirrel was most likely checking out the camera to see if he could take it with him. No, little guy, that’s not a nut!
2. On the other hand, here’s a certain moose that was feeling a little camera-shy. Photographer Liam Richardson captured this moment and submitted the photo to the Comedy Wildlife photography competition. We can see why: what’s funnier than a moose attempting some camouflage to get out of a picture? Not everyone likes seeing themselves on camera!
