Name of Whooping Crane Festival, these wonderful pictures etc. all are expansion of beautiful side of reality for me(as they were non-existant for me before). I am thankful to you people for such additions.

The wonders and diversity of nature, in all its forms and functions, boggles my mind. Not only the individual animal that evolves to its present characteristics, but the niche that it fills in the science of things amazes me. Nature supports only as much as it can sustain; the rest die off. Nature, wiser than humans, lives in balance.
