Another small wetlands bites the dust....
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 06-17-2008, 08:44 PM

for more development. A couple weeks ago (before the rain) I went for a walk in the neighbourhood and was surprised to see heavy equipment working on what was last year still a working cattle operation. Anyway here are some pictures:

A little further down the road I found these critters







I believe that I took all of them with the K10D and 50-200

Comments are always welcome.

.. the constant suggestion from .. parts of the government .. that we can seriously impact our personal energy consumption by doing such things as turning our TVs off standby or unplugging our mobile-phone chargers.

Anyone with even a slight grasp of energy units should know that this is madness. Skipping one bath saves a much energy as leaving your TV off standby for over six months.

Hi Heinrich,

This is one of the reasons why I photograph nature and wildlife - to have a record of some sort for the future. It's amazing how quickly things are consumed by developments. Very, very sad...

Thanks for sharing these, and I enjoyed the birding shots.

Regards,
Marc

Yup, it's not brain surgery.
