With this post, I hope finally to resume more frequent and more regular posts on Nature’s Depths!
A couple of years ago, prompted by the Easter Sunday that had just passed, I offered you a Rumination on the seasonal cycle of life on our Earth. This year, Easter Sunday has once again brought experiences and reflections that I would like to share with you.
In this post, I would like both to offer some important personal news and to introduce an enriched perspective on living beings.
Our migratory kin travel south in the fall and back north in the spring. They do this over distances of hundreds or thousands, even tens of thousands of miles. How is this possible? Let us side-step the question of how different species manage to obtain enough energy to fly, walk, or swim for such distances and ask the other big question: How do they know in what direction they should be traveling?
