Nature inspires us with its beauty, but it also hides a lot of secrets. Flowers or animals that look sweet at first glance can be really deadly, while picturesque natural events can bring irreparable harm. After experiencing this it becomes clear why humanity hides behind the walls of crowded cities.

We at Bright Side put together some photos from different corners of the world which show how truly amazing our planet is.
