This interlude, beyond just being an excuse to share the enjoyment of babes in bikinis, is a gentle reminder – albeit an unseasonable one for those of us in higher latitudes, North or South – that bikinis are perfectly suitable for places in nature other than beaches.
“Saving” a tortoise and throwing in it the water where it will drown – yeah, sadly, ecotards are like that all too often. In fact, a certain number of this misborn and very poorly raised idiots are an active and credible threat to the environment they purport to save.
Maybe, just maybe, there’s fewer and less extreme idiots among the “environmental activists” today, but in the many years I worked in the environmental field, I saw or heard of many, many acts of stupidity by ecotards that were at least as bad as throwing a tortoise into deep water in to set it free. Some were downright dangerous to whole population groups. 🙄
Yeah, funny thing that. Crows and ravens are always the birds associated with Halloween, but’s it’s the Shrike, Loggerhead or otherwise, that’s sick, twisted seeming bird in the natural world.
So, have a happy Halloween… but watch out for them shrikes. 😉
