Do you know that great song by The Byrds called Turn! Turn! Turn! from 1965?

Part of the lyrics for the song are:

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap.

I immediately thought of this song when I saw the photos of the life cycles of different things that you’re about to take a look at below.

Also, all you youngsters out there, you should be listening to The Byrds…trust me on this one…

People shared cool photos of the life cycles of different things and we think it might just give you a little perspective about how the world turns…let’s take a look.
