California is in the clutches of a VERY severe drought. It’s obvious everywhere. No matter where you look, the land is brown and parched.
Last year these ponds were filled with water and teeming with all sorts of ducks, swans and geese.This year there are very VERY few birds, maybe a few hundred when last year there were many thousands. It is scary how parched everything is.
We are so arrogant when it comes to nature. We think we can bend her to our will and whatever consequences might happen we can fix those too.
It is hard to see these empty ponds without fearing for the future.
