Sunsets, Stilts, & a Snuff Film

First, a couple sunset pictures from Kaloko-Honokohau. Both have the same cruise ship heading out from Kailua (As always, click for larger):

This is part of the largest gathering of (federally endangered) Hawaiian stilts that I've seen in several years of walking at the park. I counted seventeen in all. I love these birds, with their elegant long legs:

Finally, for anyone who hasn't yet seen this, is a snuff-film fantasy from the hysterical, eliminationist wing of the environmental movement. I suppose lots of people have dark thoughts about just getting rid of those who don't agree with them, but it takes a certain cocooned self-righteous mentality to conclude that such a fantasy would make a great advertising campaign (Disturbing content if you disapprove of exploding schoolchildren):

Talk about extremism. Who was their ad agency, ELF? Can't imaging winning many converts with this strategy.

I did not watch the video... but love pictures of sunsets and sunrises around our island.

The beautiful scenes of sun rise and sun set and bank of river around the mountain and island.
I have seen the video which gave me mixed feeling.
Thanks for it


I love this blog!
