“To walk into the nature is to witness a thousand miracles.” - Mary Davis
And when you can’t step into nature (especially during the COVID-19 lockdown), you can have a glimpse of nature’s beauty through photography. Nature photography encompasses capturing the aesthetics of nature, natural elements (landscapes, wildlife, and plants) and close-ups of natural elements and textures.
Typically, nature photography is considered an all-embracing category, including "wildlife photography," "landscape photography," and "garden photography." It emphasizes the aesthetic value of the photo, unlike other genres of photography.
Let’s check out some brilliant nature photos captured by brilliant photographers.

The fire ants use their bodies to construct tower-like structures to reach the higher branches. They do it all without laying out any plan or expert leadership. A study suggests that it takes coordinated effort and spirit of unity to achieve this.
