    wow, I am very surprised, from the teaser I thought it was something with ice, I couldn’t tell what the scale was at first so it could have been anything from a ice cave or a mountain. instead its a bag, nice…

    HEY! thanks for posting the pictures…
    I must say I was inspired by “American Beauty”, there is a scene in the film where a plastic bag is softly lifted and driven away by the wind. The bag obviously portrayed a character tossed to and fro by life, with no control over his life. I guess if you like my pictures, I hope you appreciate the film. Thanks for your comments… And keep up the blogç

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!
