Paddy Clarke 5 Dec 2019

We're at a point in society where our relationship to the natural world is nearing the forefront of political discourse. However, there is still a lot that needs to be done to help protect the planet that we occupy.

Nature is full of amazing surprises, and while humanity continues to eat into the natural world, there are some fantastic instances where nature has begun to reclaim not-so-natural things for its own. So, here are 17+ compelling pictures of nature stealing not-so-natural things!

That, my friends, is a hornets nest, completely dominating the interior of a car. Well, I say hornets nest, but it's more like a hornets condo complex with an attached shopping center.
