Trees without leaves

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Turku, Finland) on 17 August 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

Saw this little island a week ago. The trees have lost their leaves because the great cormorants have moved there. Their droppings kill the trees where they live.

@Oiva: I wouldn't say they are nasty, they just do what they have to do...

Isn't it amazing how nature behaves? I did not know this about cormorants.

@Ruthiebear: Nature amazes me every day I live. I'm happy I could tell you something new today.

The cormorant is a nature almost as dangerous as a human being. Dead trees on the islands are sad to watch.

@Jypyä Pop: I would say they are not even close as dangerous to nature than the human beings are.
