All around us are towering trees, waterfalls, and even animals that largely supersede our size. The clouds are so high above our heads we can’t even reach up to touch them, not even perched on the shoulders of your tallest friend. Yet somehow we all grow up thinking we are big, big enough to have real world problems. We feel so large and in charge in our everyday lives, where 6 feet tall seems like a grand height.
Take a deep breath and relax, learn to have a little bit more fun. After all, we are only tiny humans. The above photo, taken in Mansfield Victoria, Australia, depicts just how small humans are in comparison to the nature that surrounds us.
Trillions of people call planet earth home, although it too is a small dot on a grander scale. The Voyager 1 took an image of our solar system from 4 billion miles away, and all that you could see in proof of our incredible home was a very small speck. Astronomer Carl Sagan comments on the photo from deep space, “If you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you know, everyone you love, everyone you’ve ever heard of…”
Here are some of the most incredible photos of humans lost in nature, highlighting just how small we really are.

Despite your small body mass, everything that you do in life has an effect, on other humans, animals, and the planet in general. We can make this world a better place by simply realizing the power that we have inside of our little bodies.
