Adapting to Change

Have you ever heard a tune and find yourself humming the tune repeatedly?
I have just seen a photo and the image stayed, my heart hurts and I know I must share this.

Where there should be snow, instead there is a field of purple flowers, confusing this polar bear

The above photo is taken from Mail Online.
You may view all the beautiful photos and read the entire story by petting the bear on its head with the touch pad or mouse.
It is about the polar bear missing the snow and losing the ability to camouflage due to the change in climate.
I hope the bear doesn't turn purple but white flowers bloom abundantly instead.
Even then, the polar bear may miss feeding on ice.
I guess we human do encounter changes in our environment and learn to adapt as well.



Back in my garden, there are green grasshoppers that camouflage well amongst the leaves.


However, there is a white grasshopper that stands out which reminds me of the polar bear.
Will there come a day when we encounter snow in the tropics?
Will we adapt?
Let's live in the present moment and enjoy what we have today.
Who knows, they may be gone tomorrow.
Meanwhile trust that we would be able to adapt to changes...

  5. What an interesting creature, your white grasshopper is. Your second shot of the green grasshopper is a great capture. Have you considered getting a D-SLR - I think you are more than ready for the adventure.

    For some reason, I am unable to go into DIGI's website to vote today, have been voting daily with no problems, but since this afternoon, could not connect to DIGI, the screen is blank. Any problem on your side?.. BTW, I'm so happy to see that you are getting closer to the top! Keeping my fingers crossed that you will reach the top, better prepare a Onenezz flag, looks like you are going to need it! :)

  13. Beautiful picture of the bear among the blooms, but when you look closer you see the damage. Sadly, all adapt, or die trying. (not fond of grasshoppers, but those are great shots)

  16. First it's lovely to see it sitting there like that's where it wants to be, but it is sad that it's environment is changing. The grasshopper is a great closeup shot.

  21. Sorry One for taking so long getting over here this week - and I've missed a couple of week's captions aswell. What a picture - I really felt very uneasy looking at that poor polar bear in surroundings that are so alien to his natural habitat. At first I thought he was photoshoped into the picture - that wouldn't have been so bad but that is REAL! poor animal.

    Those grasshopper shots are so good especially that one where he's looking down the lens at you.
