Photo by @peteressick | A tree swallow parent brings food to chicks inside the box on the bank of the Rouge River, Detroit, Michigan. In the background is a steel mill on Zug Island. Tree swallows feed on insects in the river, so they are an excellent indicator species concerning the amount of chemical pollution in the water. A scientist from the U.S. Geological Survey is conducting a study now – before dredging of contaminated sediments on the bottom of the river – to determine the level of chemicals in the tree swallows' blood. Hopefully, after restoration, the levels will decline. #greatlakes #restoration #sediments
Photo by @irablockphoto // Fishermen arriving at the beach at Hua Hin, Thailand after a night of fishing in Gulf of Thailand. Hua Hin is a seaside resort on west coast of the Gulf. Originally it was a small fishing village, that grew into a resort town after the Thai Royal family built summer palaces in the area to escape the heat of Bangkok. #followme @irablockphoto to see more images from around the world. @thephotosociety . – – – #huahin #thailand #beach #sunrise #fishing # boats #gulfofthailand #ocean #fish #nets #travel #resort
Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio 100 years ago this month saw the beginning of the end of the First World War. From 8 August to 11 November 1918 the war entered its final phase during which the Allies (US, British, French… forces) launched a series of offensives against the Germans on the Western Front. The offensive essentially pushed the Germans out of France, forcing them to retreat beyond the Hindenburg Line, and was followed by an armistice and the collapse of the German Empire. There were over 1.8 million casualties on both sides. I've been working for a year now on a larger project about the aftermath of the War. Here at Newfoundland Park on the Somme, the preserved trenches and shell holes are softened, but still preserved.
