Ah, nature. The spoils of the outdoors are vast and varied, replete with an endless arrangement of complexities and subtle nuances. Nature-lovers have all spent time contemplating anthills, appreciated a brisk swim in a salty, buoyant ocean, or geeking out over a magnificently bright-colored mushroom growing out of the mud.

Each one of them, in its own way, proves that Mother Nature is a selfless producer of all things amazing and unique. #18 will make you question every rock you've ever seen.
