“I begin with nature today, which gives us so much, including the amazing opportunities for photography. Hence it must be our duty to preserve this beautiful  planet, in whatever small way we can in our own capacity.

Suyash Chopra

I don’t know what the answer is, apart from including “food trees” in my garden in a vain effort to aid the possums, birds, butterflies and bats who lose their breeding and feeding grounds

      Not a vain effort, Maureen. Every little gesture helps more than if no gesture was made at all. Native plant gardening is a good start. Set an example and spread the word! 🙂

  3. Thank you for re-blogging this, Eliza 😉
