Dodder, The Plant which can Smell. Photo by Michael Becker, wikipedia: Dodder is a genus of parasitic plant which grows as a vine and has only vestigial leaves. After germination, a seedling has enough food reserve for 5-10 days during which it grows towards the smell of other plants which it then parasitizes.

'The Door to Hell', Derweze, Turkmenistan by wikipedia: While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided to burn it off. Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today. Photo by flydime.
