Nature has many unfathomable secrets, and we don’t always realize the complexity of things or how interdependent life on earth actually is. In these incredible photos we are once more made conscious of our majestic planet in all its abundance and variety.

Living beings have to go through many experiences in life, enabling us to become rich in knowledge and precious memories. From these life lessons we learn to move forward as a whole. As we deepen our understanding of the laws of nature, communicating well with our environment and keeping in touch with the earth and ourselves, we are taught to respect the great spirit that resides in every living thing.

The following raw images show animals in their natural habitat. It’s a rare glimpse into nature’s treasure trove that most of us will perhaps never see in person. The high-resolution pictures create the feeling of being on the spot.
