It takes just three minutes to watch this video, but it covers eight months of an oak tree's life. First, we go underground, where the plant slowly bursts from its shell, and eventually above ground, where it shoots up into a young tree.
Nature is never not amazing. Even the simplest things—things you've seen in 7th grade science class—are impressive to watch again and again. Like this time lapse of an acorn transforming itself into an oak seedling over a period of 8 months. One day, that little guy is going to be one helluva tree.
