Nature works in mysterious ways.
Whenever we hear the word ‘nature’ we start to think of flowers, forests, mountains and all things beautiful. Nature is, undoubtedly, mesmerizing and one always feels amazing to be in the company of it. It relaxes your mind and soul and helps in taking the stress of human environment off. But, as Tennyson says that nature is red in tooth and claw, it has a dark and spooky side to it as well. It overwhelms us with its vastness and versatility and also scares us sometimes with the unusual things it has.
As the spooky season is approaching, we all want some eerie stuff to watch(for the culture of course) We have, for this reason, combined a number of pictures in this thread. These photos show mother nature’s somewhat scary side that will definitely make you skin crawl.
So, let’s get started.

Well, this is creepy and amazing at the same time. One can only wonder how does all of this possibly happen. But whatever the reason, mother nature can surprise us in numerous ways. And these photos are the proof of it. We still have many left, so keep going.
