Let’s play.

You know you want to.

I hate to say it, but the first thing that came to my mind when I read this?

Humans. The planet would be a far better, greener place without us. Goes without saying my blog stats would drop dramatically, but it’s a small price to pay.

.

.

On a lighter note, there’s one simple answer for me.

Kale. The sooner we rid the world of this noxious weed the better…

.

.

No kale crackers, no kale chips and for the love of all that’s holy… no kale ice cream.

🤮

How about you? What do you want to banish from earth….

The Photo Ark

.

Have you heard of Joel Sartore?

.

.

Arctic Fox.

If not, let me rectify that.

.

.

.

Tiger Striped Tree Frog.

Joel has made it his mission in life to photograph the approximately 12,000 species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries.

.

.

Brown Throated Sloth.

But Joel’s photographs are different.

.

.

Springbok Mantis.

They’re special.

.

.

Mandrill.

Because they’re portraits.

.

.

Spectacled Eiders.

Stunning portraits of glorious diversity.

.

.

California Sea Lion.

Joel believes if we see these marvelous creatures… we’ll feel something.

.

.

Andean Condor.

We’ll care.

.

.

Sumatran Rhinoceros.

And if we care, we’ll fight to preserve not only them, but the habitats they need to thrive.

.

.

DeBrazza’s Monkey.

Joel is my hero. And I’ve bought all 3 of his incredible books.

.

.

As I make my way through them, I’m going to share some of his work.

Because they make me feel.

Because they make me care.

Not all of the animals are beautiful.

.

.

Common Warthog.

But all of them are perfect… and worth protecting.
