One of the best parts of summer is seeing everything come back to life after a long winter. Leaves are bright, plants emerge, birds (and bugs) return, and the days grow long. The season can move so quickly that one might miss it without paying special attention to new growth and arrivals. In honor of these changes, the MyUntangledLife team has been looking around the web for this special nature photos and video edition of Things Worth Sharing.

Flowers

If all of a sudden you turned around and the spring flowers had bloomed and gone, this time-lapse video of flowers blooming is just for you.

Migration

Nature Photographer Will Burrard-Lucas always has amazing photos to share from his travels. This stunning video captures wildebeest as they migrate between Tanzania and Kenya. The video was a finalist in the TimeLapse category of the 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

Dinosaurs

Recent discoveries suggest that Brontosaurus does in fact differ enough to merit its own genus. These articles from Smithsonian and Wired do a great job of providing an overview of the historical debate and the new research.

Birds

There are so many great bird-related links lately, that this post includes three.

Lions, Tigers, and Bears, and more:

Photographer Joel Sartore is working on a project funded in part by National Geographic to take studio portraits of endangered animals and other zoo species so that a record of them is preserved. He calls it the Photo Ark. You can purchase photos to benefit the project as well.

Get out there and enjoy (after you’ve viewed all these stunning nature photos and video of course)!

Get to know Kathleen MacArthur (78 Posts)

Kat has enjoyed baking and cooking for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother, Rita, was a great baker—especially of pies. Inspired by Rita, Kat began to be the one to bring dessert to family events. (Her grandfather, Stu, used to say that “Kat is bringing dessert” were some of his favorite words.) Often her family will hide the Christmas cookies she gives them when they have guests in the house. Her husband is a great tester of Kat Treats. When Kat is not baking or blogging, she works in higher education (but secretly dreams that some day she might open a treat truck or bakery/bookstore).
