60 Chilling Nature Photos 

Rare Collection | April 12, 2020

Written by Jacob Shelton

Look closer...these are the most chilling, unedited photos ever captured in nature.

Mother Nature can be gentle and kind, but on the day these photos were taken, she was dark, demonic, and dangerous. 

It’s risky business walking out your front door and these pictures prove it. They feature frightening animals, unreal weather patterns and some of the most striking and disorienting visuals that have ever been witnessed.  Nature is only bound by the laws of physics… it has the ability to explode lava through the Earth, freeze homes, and send sand rushing like a tidal wave, but it can create wonders that touch your soul as well.

This rarely seen collection of nature photos are not suitable for all eyes...but if you dare, take a closer look these 60 chilling nature photos.  Viewer discretion advised.  

These are the most savage and powerful hunters on Earth...the Harpy Eagle stands 6 feet tall and will prey on sloths and even monkeys. It's sharp stare is one out of our darkest nightmares...and, wow, look closer at those claws 👿

In spite of their naive looking faces great harpy eagles are some of the most powerful and conniving hunters on Earth. They live at the top of the remote tropical forests in Central and South America and mostly eat sloths and monkeys. They don’t have many predators but they do have to watch out for jaguars - one of the few animals that’s happy to tangle with these large birds. Named for the gruesome Harpies of Greek mythology, these owls stay out of the open sky and fly from tree to tree in order to remain inconspicuous. Globally, the harpy eagle is considered Near Threatened by IUCN and it’s thought to be a “conservation-dependent species,” which means that it depends on a dedicated effort for captive breeding and release to the wild.
