The smallest things can hide an entire tiny world, worthy of a science fiction movie or a fairy tale. In the distance, you can see a simple log, but if you zoom in a bit closer, you’ll see that the old tree can house a miniature replica of a volcano’s crater.

Here at Bright Side, we found the right framing and invite you to discover the many little universes right here on Earth.
