Werner Bollmann - Back Home


When in spring the white storks return from their wintering grounds we Europeans use to say ”our storks are back”. The people in Eastern Africa do so when the storks arrive in their countries in late autumn. Who is right? Is a bird’s home where it is breeding or rather there where it stays most time of the year? Anyway, good to see when they’re coming back home…

    i believe the planet Earth is Stork's (and all other beings') home and I really can't understand why we humans as 'intelligent' creatures destroy our own home which is the most miraculous and beautiful world imaginable (as your photograph also shows) ...

    We are all shadows and dust... but beauty and life will prevail althuogh our ability to destroy... Great image, beautifull!
