Breathtaking time-lapse animations of flowers blooming

These incredible GIFs are extracted from a time-lapse blooming video by Japanese artist Yutaka Kitamura. The series, titled ‘Touched by Strangers’, reminds us how alive flowers and plants actually are. The speed of the animations transforms these typically passive creations of nature into active entities that grow and move like living, breathing animals.

In an inspirational poetic statement from her Tumblr Kitamura states, “I sit before flowers hoping they will train me in the art of opening up. I stand on mountain tops believing that avalanches will teach me to let go. I know nothing but I am here to learn.”
