Quirky and creepy nature pictures
WARNING: The following images may be disturbing to some people.
Nature is as beautiful as it can be gruesome. Blooming fields and magically singing birds are just as much a part of it as sights that can haunt you into the worst nightmares.
The strangest videos. (Scroll down to the article.)
But the creepier a scene, the more fascinating it is of course. Often what is observed is not dangerous or cruel at all, just unfamiliar. It is always worthwhile to take a closer look after the initial shock – you might even witness a very special moment.
