This next one is on water H2O which is one of my favourite subjects. I love this. I've always found movement of water mesmerizing especially in a river or stream. This reminds me of the years I spent living in Idyllwild California in Fern Valley along Strawberry Creek. I've included a video of water in Yosemite CA which is actually an even better illustration of what I'm feeling here in expression - *smile*
This next one is the 2011 Bioneers Conference. His beautiful cinematography captures slow-motion Salmon, time-lapse mushrooms, and slime mold in Olympic National forest.
Here is one of my favourites with regards slow-motion pollinators found in our natural world where often things seem to happen at super warp type speeds for us humans and we just seem to miss so much of what is happening all around us. Some of it is hilarious especially the antics of the Hummingbirds.
This video was shown at the TED Conference in 2011, with scenes from "Wings of Life" which is the shortened version of a documentary by Disney Nature who also did a film documentary called "Pollen" which dealt with the real threats to ALL of our planet's pollinators by the use of Chemical Pesticides which can destroy these brilliant mechanisms which are essential pollinators that sustains the fabric of life. Here is also a link to an informative website on pollination.
And finally a longer video entitled "Gratitude" which starts with the innocent expressions & observations of a young child for natural wonders which sadly most of our world's adults have lost.
Previous article or post dealt with parents responsibility to teach their kids about nature. There have been recent findings that show that what looks like child's play may actually be a scientific experiment.
Enjoy your Friday for a change. Take a moment and dump the Ideologue News items of Right-Wingers verses Left-Wingers and all other negativity our world's global News Media shoves in our faces because we let them. Take time to slow down and view things at a slow motion pace. Go out there on a nature hike and take time to appreciate many of the things you wondered about as a child which use to intrigue you so much before you discovered the reality of the adult world's incompetence at custodianship of our Earth. To get the most out of such a relaxing detour, you first need to dump your electronics or at least turn them off for a short time and enjoy a Friday for a change.
