A wonderful group of pictures and a sad look at what we are allowing to be done to land for the sake of profit today, with massive long run destruction.

An access road is constructed in a peatland forest being cleared for a Palm Oil plantation in Aceh province, on Indonesia's Sumatra island. As SE Asia's largest economy grows rapidly, swaths of biodiverse Forests across the archipelago of 17,000 islands have been cleared to make way for Paper & Palm Oil plantations, for Mining & Agriculture. The destruction has ravaged biodiversity, placing animals such as Orangutans & Sumatran Ttigers in danger of extinction, while also leading to the release of vast amounts of ClimateChange-causing carbon dioxide. Indonesia is the 3rd biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, after China & the US

You had me with the first bird picture ~ and then the others.
I can't think about all the damage, that has to be for another day. Today, I have to enjoy the beautiful pictures. Thanks, Cher!

#11 promises 300,000 new babies will be delivered by 300,000 storks! LOL I LOVE #8 of the bee collecting pollen from the beautiful lavender flower!! A bee collects pollen from a flower at Vaclav Havel airport in Prague. Honey produced by the bees are checked for its quality and presence of pollutants to help the Vaclav airport to collect pollution data about the environment.

Loved the very first. Can't imagine the excitement I'd feel if able to see all those birds in flight, take off and landing, in person. Thank you.

Marvellous, especially the flower and the bee. It is below 50 F at the moment...a few days ago we were roasting from the heat.
