Thanks Paul  for How Venezuela Became a Warzone
 
This report sounds more balanced than other things I have read.  The US has a long history of trying to topple Chavez and now Maduro -- including attempted coups -- with complicity of US media.  I know there are two sides to this story, but the MSM's accounting is only one of them.

Something told me inside that i want to feel summer heat and all that sun light, with sweet warm breath of summer wind somewhere at endless beauty of countryside...

Avocados are relatively inexpensive right now (in season between October and February) so it's a great time to pick up a few when you're at the market. Just make sure you know when they're at their ripest as seen in these photos.

It's funny how it's what you get used to, isn't it, +Derrick Best  ? I was allergic to apples as a kid. I grew out of the allergy; now I can have them every day, and it seems like the greatest luxury.

Indian Pond Heron waiting to strike!
This is more for the composition than the bird. The image is about shapes and lines and looks good (to me) in monochrome. But I chose colour to post because of the severe winter many of my friends face. This may brighten up their day a bit! :)

Ought to be a way to paint them to keep the birds away.  Birds hit windows and the shape of  a hawk prevents many deaths. 
 
It's no secret that wind turbines are responsible for the deaths of many birds each year. In the US they also kill a lot of eagles, which is illegal. Now the US government has extended a permit to the wind energy industry in the US which allows them to keep killing said eagles without repercussions.

Some environmental groups are now distancing themselves from the wind energy industry, expression concern about giving this industry a blank check when it comes to the killing of federally protected species.

They should use drones to patrol the area and discourage the birds.

Pamukkale, Turkey

http://furkl.com/pamukkale-turkey/

Pamukkale, meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, is a natural site in Denizli Province in southwestern Turkey. The city contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It is located in Turkey’s Inner Aegean region, in the River Menderes valley, which has a temperate climate for most of the year.

The ancient Greco-Roman and Byzantine city of Hierapolis was built on top of the white “castle” which is in total about 2,700 metres (8,860 ft) long, 600 m (1,970 ft) wide and 160 m (525 ft) high. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 km away.
