The world is an amazing place, full of incredible natural phenomena and creatures that showcase the sheer diversity of the land we inhabit. While the vast majority of these natural wonders are astounding to observe, some are also entirely unpredictable and terrifying in equal measures. Now that everyone has a hi-depth-quality camera on them at all times, it has become incredibly easy to capture these noteworthy moments in nature.

There are some things you just don't want to run into while casually strolling through an idyllic field (namely trees completely swathed in cobwebs).
