The Ever-Changing Forest Comes to Life in This Beautiful Time-Lapse Video

•, By Adam Mann
 If you need a good reminder, check out this beautiful time-lapse video, depicting a year of sights and sounds from a forest.

The film comes from filmmaker and photographer Samuel Orr, who spent nearly two years in a small house at the edge of the woods outside Bloomington, Indiana, while creating nature documentaries for PBS. A peek out his window showed birds swooping into the eaves, orb spiders weaving webs, deer scampering by, and the ever-changing shadows and rustlings of nature.

Orr set up a dedicated camera tripod inside his house that captured more than 40,000 pictures over the course of 16 months. By stitching them together, he produced a wonderful testament showing the full changes of a year: snow melting, grasses growing, rain falling, and the sun shifting in the sky.
