Stopped for a bit today on a boulder by a burn, just below the treeline.

These four images are all from that one rock.
Yet, still we could have taken a dozen more, and *not* captured the biodiversity within a very small space.

It occurs to us, that often when biodiversity is talked about in the media etc, most of us have no real idea about what that means.
The levels of complexity in natural habitats are almost incomprehensible.

@CreatureOfTheHill these are intensely beautiful! the first shot especially; makes me hungry for tempura, or onion rings. πŸ˜€

@CreatureOfTheHill

Absolutely stunning pictures!

Sadly true. It's tragic how much environmental destruction there still is, and how much diversity is lost as a result.

@openscience
We still have a great deal of hope for nature, it's tendency to gravitate towards complexity and intertwined symbiotic systems when left alone means we just need to give it space to work. πŸ’š
A little less management, and a lot more facilitation πŸ˜€

@CreatureOfTheHill

Good that there are still some optimists πŸ˜‚ lets hope for the best 🀞
