20 Incredible Accidents Made by Nature

We sometimes forget how amazing nature is.

It’s constantly making art, even in the tiniest, most mundane things.

Here are examples of Mother Nature working accidents into pure artistic magic.

At first glance, this looks like a Monet, or another impressionist painter. What it is, however, is a photograph of oranges through the panes of a greenhouse. Amazing, isn’t it?

This looks straight out of a very expensive, very modern gallery. But it’s just ice. On a fence. In winter. Let that soak in.

It’s actually morning frost on planks of wood, but the patterns are so deliberate, they look delicately feathered on.

You would be forgiven for thinking this very amazing rendering of a volcano is intentional. It’s not. It’s just a stain from a tint that was left out. Cool, no?

Look at all those metallics and golds. Look at the swirls… It must be very expensive fabric. *Squints closer* It’s a log. Totally a log.

You’d be forgiven for thinking it is. After all, it’s so delicate, so well defined… But it’s actually just a crack. A rock hit the windshield.

Who did this?! Who dyed the cat?! Wait, it’s not dye, you say? It’s just the sun going through an Easter decal? Amazing.

At least, that’s what it looks like to us if we squint really hard. But it’s actually just unstirred paint.

And there’s even what looks like a little man walking towards it. But it’s just the pattern inside. Neat, huh?

At least, that’s what it looks like. But really, it’s just a house with frost on it. If it really were a postcard, it would probably titled “Birds flying off a pine tree.”

This looks like it would be very much at home in one of those craftsman house windows. But it’s not painted glass. It’s broken glass reflecting sunlight.

At least, that’s what it looks like. What it actually is are mud spatters on a car window in the Australian outback.

Sometimes, you’re in the exact right spot at the exact right moment, and then magic happens. Like this reflection of a tapestry that was caught in a coffee cup.

And Mother Nature created it by splitting this piece of wood in the exactly perfect way. Isn’t Nature amazing?

Dirty car. It’s totally a dirty car. Roll through some mud and you too can be a burgeoning painter of sublime talent and delicate paintbrush technique.

We do, and we also see the forest below it. Is it an etching or is it a dirty car that’s been in the garage one too many days? You decide…

But it wasn’t made by some clever artist, it was made Redditor Roccobot dropped water and opened a table extension to dry…

They love it so much even their shadows become plaid patterns. Redditor BookerDeWittsCarbine caught a glimpse of this phenomenon in Scotland, but Redditor Banana_in_donut had a slight correction:
For those who don’t know: tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland.

Moss will grow pretty much anywhere. Case in point, this colony sprouting from a bike seat without a care in the world.

But no, it’s the foam on the side of a coffee cup. Ain’t nature grand? Send this to your art-loving friends to completely amaze them!
