I Took Photos!

The title is a bit mis-leading, I didn’t personally take these photos that I’m about to share with you, they’re from Josh Monaghan’s fabulous I TOOK PHOTOS BLOG. No relation to itookphotos, which is also a great site but the slick navigation slows me down – I just want to scroll! Sometimes simple is better. No, simple is always better. If you know of other great photo blogs, not named “i took photos” hit me! And then tell me about the photo blogs! Hiyoooo.

    the last one is amazing. but what do you mean can’t see the horizon? isn’t the horizon where the water meets the sky?

Good News of the Day: Army of 1,000 Ducks Used as Brilliant Pesticide Alternative

Ducks

South Africa’s Vergenoegd vineyard in Stellenbosch keeps a flock of over 1,000 Indian Runner ducks to help combat tiny white dune snails that would otherwise destroy the budding vines. The ducks’ upright and slender posture allow them to navigate the rows of plants, clearing up to a hectare a day.

While the cost of keeping all these ducks is significantly higher than standard pesticides, the duck army is so effective that the vineyard uses minimal chemicals and is recognized for its sustainability. See more images by London-born, Cape Town-based photographer Mike Hutchings and a video of the ducks working below!
