If you’re unfamiliar with the Haleakala Silversword plant, it grows a bit awkwardly. It’ll almost look like a cactus when completely grown. It gets the name “silversword” due to what it looks like when completely grown. It has an appearance to that of a sword and obviously, it has a silver tint to it. This plant is also only native to one place and truly won’t grow anywhere else on the planet. You can find it on the Hawaiian island of Maui at the tallest summit. You will not be able to see it grow elsewhere so be sure to take lots of pictures.
Jasper National Park is located in Alberta, Canada, and stretches across 11,000 kilometers or 6,835 miles. It’s the largest National Park in the Canadian Rockies too. That said, this is a large land that is absolutely beautiful and protected well by Canada. Yet someone up above may also be looking down to keep an eye on things. This amazing light was caught in an image showing a break in the clouds where the sun forced its way through. Mind-blowing nature moments like this aren’t easy to catch on camera, so we’re happy someone managed to do so.
The Hippopotamus is one of the largest creatures we have on the planet. In spite of their size, they can move relatively quickly and do not mind hurting anyone that comes close. You ever wondered why you don’t hear as many stories about predatory cats like Lions attacking Hippos? It is likely because they know Hippos are incredibly territorial and can destroy pretty much any predator. Especially due to being surrounded by other Hippos a lot. In this image, you can see the amazing togetherness of this Hippo Tribe. The Hippos that mud bathe together, stay together, right?
NASA uses a “vehicle assembly building,” better known as a VAB, in multiple places for testing purposes. This particular VAB belongs to the John F. Kennedy Space Center. The image caught looks almost like a creepy painting or something from the Death Stranding video game. In actual truth, the VAB was caught in some early morning fog. One could likely not ask for fog at a better time, as mind-blowing nature was at work to help create the perfect photo opportunity.
This is truly mind-blowing nature at work. What you’re seeing may come across like potentially a rope hanging from the ceiling, but it’s not. This is literally a living rope or living bridge created by an ant colony. The ants form together and hold tight as they come together for this task. It appears that they wanted to create a better system to get from point A to point B. The reason they likely did not just walk across the ceiling is due to the fact that they likely might need to carry back things too heavy for them to do so. Therefore, their living bridge is the best concept to go with. It truly is impressive to see.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if a volcano randomly erupted and lightning managed to strike down at the very same time? This image gives you that exactly, as a volcano erupted and lightning hit in the same spot. Science geeks will tell you that this specific type of eruption actually causes lightning to strike down. Yet non-science people will tell you it was the Nature Gods getting angry with us and showing off their power to keep us in line. You decide which is true. We kind of like the Nature God concept.
One of the most amazing things you’ll ever see is certainly Lake Sørvágsvatn. Referred to by many as the “Lake above the Sea,” it actually is as described or assumed. This cliffside area happens to be part of the Faroe Island chain in Scotland. This specific area is on the island of Vágar. The island obviously has its own lake area, but due to being an island, it’s also in the middle of the ocean. This quite literally separates the Atlantic Ocean and Vágar Lake by the smallest of margins.
