Sadly noted & shared, ty Cal

A beautiful remembrance of my childhood is, that everywhere were thousands of ladybugs, butterflies, bumblebees, etc. - today barely visible :-(
A very bad development by greedy & stupid human impact - as usual

Veramente molto triste, non perdiamo solo la bellezza di questi insetti, ma essendo importanti per l'impollinazione, il pericolo è grave, oltretutto la perdita ormai è diventata globale.
Grazie per condividere Cal.

Noted - humans are nothing but a plague on this earth - we can respect, care for and leave in peace no other living creature!
