We tend to take it for granted that the world around us looks pretty much the same all the time. The trees are green, the sky is blue, and the dirt is brown. However, once we take a closer look, it turns out that even Mother Nature “messes up” every once in a while, and produces something that totally deviates from the norm. Here are some of the times that nature slipped up and the results were incredible.

When it’s a double rainbow kind of day.

Clearly, Mother Nature had just a little too much fun on St Patrick’s day and decided that one rainbow was not enough. So this is the result. It’s pretty crazy to even see one rainbow in the sky, so you can just imagine how people reacted to this unusual sight of 8 rainbows in the sky. Definitely Instagram worthy, that’s for sure.

Some butterflies have transparent wings.

This person was just minding their own business, enjoying a sunny afternoon when suddenly they noticed a very unusual sight. Yup, glass wing butterflies are actually a thing, but they’re very rare, and most people don’t have the amazing luck of running into one.

Lenticular clouds look strangely like UFOs.

If we were on our way to work and saw this unusual sight, we would probably turn right around and go home. Yes, we might get in some trouble with our boss, but it’s still not worth getting abducted by aliens on our morning commute. Clearly, something weird was happening on that day, but we’ll probably never know what it was.
