A Druid’s tears

 

One single tear to commemorate each incalculable loss. This page contains a list of recently extinct species whose demise we undoubtedly contributed to, followed by an on-going photographic commentary of the burgeoning American wasteland. No text is included as the photos speak for themselves far more eloquently than any words.
