Sandra Critelli caught these amazing photos of stingrays. Her photos have become very popular on the viral web. I've gotten three emails from different people detailing her adventure. I asked Sandra whether it was OK to post her pictures on Zoobird. She thanked me and said it was OK. So, here are a few. Her website is http://sandracritelli.com/.

NATIVE HIPPIE WHEAT

By

Sh’mal Ellenberg





“Grow wheat?

Kenge, what do you mean, grow wheat?”

Till it comes,

In the meantime,

We will prepare.

Listening to Water

Posted by Lars Andersen on February 3, 2012 at 11:51pm 1 Comment

 

Of all Leonardo Da Vinci’s great ideas, one of my favorites is one of his simplest. No diagrams, no assembly required, just a simple re-purposing of an everyday item—the canoe paddle. He suggested if we put its blade into water and then pressed our ear against its shaft, we could hear the sounds of aquatic life. Once again, Leonardo was way ahead of it’s time. Not only did this idea pre-date sonar, it predated the belief that the sea was worth listening to.

The organic farming revolution...


"People will tell you the organic farming revolution that's taking place is about food safety or ecolgical concerns, but I think if you dig down deep, you'll find that the revolution is really about what people are missing in their lives: good food and a connection to the land, both of which puts us in touch with basic spiritual values."

from The Sun Magazine: "Earthly Delights, Cultivating a new Agricultural Revolution: An Interview with Michael Abelman", by Arnie Cooper, June 2003
