Wow that Crested Quetzal IS beautiful Tony!

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 17, 2012 at 3:07pm

AWESOME! Absolutely beautiful! How can we be so hard on Earth when she gives us so much? 

Perhaps the tide has turned with all the weather changes, loss of ice, rising sea levels, social structures stretched to the maximum, perhaps we will begin to focus on what is healthy when in opposition to what is profitable. 

Thanks Tony and to each one of you who share such beauty with us.
