The natural world. Looking pretty for 3.5b years.

Think Green

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Saturday, December 2, 2017/Categories: natural history, photography, environment, Archive Pick of the Week, plants

Friends recently returned from two weeks sitting on an isolated beach where all they heard was the sound of waves and the rustling of leaves leaves. They couldn't get over how green everything was. With the exception of California, Florida, and a few other states, it is more white than green. A couple of rainforest images may add a nice bit of color to  your views.

It is important to "Think Green" at this white time of year.
