Time ticks in different ways for Mother Nature’s assortment of creatures and plants. And often life moves in a motion too slow for our eyes to capture. Although we can stare at a tree, we will not notice the roots burrow deep within the soil or the trunk widen with age. 

But time-lapse and slow-motion technology can provide a glimpse into a world seldom seen. These videos do just that: They show how a drop of rain pops a lizard off a brown leaf for a momentary second in time, how bell-shaped mushrooms rocket toward the sky and spread their lacy “skirts,” and how luscious green plants unfurl under the sun’s warm rays. 

Below, indulge in the slow moments of life, the ones seldom seen:
