Just a 18 year old girl who loves vintage vinyls,breakfast on a nice spring morning, wearing cute outfits, and just enjoying life :)
THE GREAT HORNBILL, a rare bird facing the problem of extinction due to its odd nesting habits. These birds have to nest in a tall tree (that takes 100 years to grow) and the females trap themselves inside the trunk of the tree for three months! During this time, the male scavenges for food for himself, his mate, and his only child. So, if either the tree gets cut down or the male or female dies, no new offspring would be produced :(
That is a good lesson of Biology for the day… ANYWAY, the photo was taken from affar and zoomed in during editting. The camera was adjusted to a high shutter speed so that there was the most amount of clarity and least amount of blurry on that foggy sunless day.
