These creatures are supposed to be tree kangaroos. They were telling people in Boston’s Public Garden about how they were close to extinction. (The real animals are indeed severely threatened.) Nice to see Earth Day remembered so creatively. Now if only we humans can do better!

My wife asked me after seeing this photograph, why I don’t take more pictures of tourists. I think it’s because I have a hard time catching much emotion in them. Street people show wear and tear. Often we turn our eyes away from the downtrodden preferring not to see their pain.

No matter. Albert Einstein said, Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
