Ospreys, Fish, Plastic Bags

Notice the plastic bags in the nest. This photo was taken on an island off Belize 90 minutes from the mainland. Check Rouvaishyana's email about Plastic Bags. We need to (have to) do something very soon in order to preserve what we can. Look at www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080506/... to learn reasons we have to change.

    Thanks Joyce. It was quite impressive to me to see that there was pollution so far out from the mainland. You would think it would be one of the cleanest places in the world, but not true.

    As photographers we often don't realize the importance of the moments we capture. Great supporting image Jerry.

    Thank for your comment, Kevin.

    magnificent shot. really makes a case for bringing your own re-usable bags to the store, doesn't it?
  • Jerry Kirkhart PRO 7y

    If everyone would do so, it would really make a difference. Thanks for your comment!

    This is a helpful and instructional image, Jerry. So glad you posted it with comment and web link. I've reduced my plastic consumption greatly in the last 2 yrs as I have grown more conscious of the environmental damage from plastic bags and plastic bottles too.

    Remember to use flickr email. Flickr doesn't notify folks about RESPONSES to comments like you get notified about comments.
