Time lapse video of a huge Amanita muscaria mushroom growing in someone's back yard.

Time lapse video of the Galactic Center of the Milky-way crossing the night sky at the Texas Star Party.

Time lapse video of ants eating a dead lizard. This is nature's recycling in action.

The ubiquitous flowers blooming time lapse.

One year on the Ice. A time lapse showing a year's worth of changes in Antarctica.

One month of coastal erosion in Alaska. This is global warming in action. You can actually watch the thawing land wash into the sea.
