Storm Chasers Of Instagram Share Incredible Photos Of Ugly Weather

Posted: Updated:

Not every Instagram user just posts photos of their pets or their favorite meals.

A new blog post from Instagram is highlighting some of its users that are also storm chasers. "For a glimpse into the tornado-chasing life," the site recommends users follow Reed Timmer, Grayson Schaffer, J Jason Bagby and Aaron Hill.

Take a look at some of our favorite photos from the chasers' feeds below, but remember that chasing storms and tornadoes is inherently dangerous and best left to the professionals.

Earlier this year, three veteran storm chasers were killed when a violent tornado struck the Oklahoma City, Okla. area. Following the deaths, The Discovery Channel re-aired one of its tornado documentaries in honor of the three men.

Reed Timmer captioned this photo, "Crazy #tornado shot by #Dominator 3 team in Saskatchewan on July 15, 2013! Just south/southeast of Regina!"

This photo was taken in mid-June when a tornado touched down near Denver International Airport in Colorado.

Timmer spotted this "Perfect 'mothership'" on May 26, 2013 in Custer County, Neb.

Aaron Hill captured this "awesome lightning show just outside of [Ponca City, Okla.]" on May 19.

"Occupational hazard. We may need to replace this pane before next season," J Jason Bagby wrote.

Timmer spotted this supercell storm in Cherry County, Neb. in late July or Early August.

Timmer posted this photo of a supercell storm in Cumin County, Neb. in June.

Timmer shared this photo of a double rainbow after chasing a supercell storm "that produced a VERY brief filament tornado" in July.
