“Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik flipped a switch to start 91 wind turbines in the North Sea, 19 miles west of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula. Denmark, a pioneer in wind energy, has six other offshore wind farms.”

Hungry Tree Frog

Picture 1

“This is a Cuban tree frog on a tree in my backyard in southern Florida. How and why he ate this light is a mystery. It should be noted that at the time I was taking this photo, I thought this frog was dead, having cooked himself from the inside. I’m happy to say I was wrong. After a few shots he adjusted his position. So after I was finished shooting him, I pulled the light out of his mouth and he was fine. Actually, I might be crazy but I don’t think he was very happy when I took his light away.”
