Lens-Artists Challenge #176- One Image/One Story
This week, Ann-Christine wants us to only one image for each (possible) story you have captured.
Birds logged as much as 49,700 miles on their geolocators, the longest migration ever recorded. Over the 30-year lifetime of a tern, it may migrate about 1.5 million miles — the distance a spaceship would cover if it went to the moon and back three times.
The monarch is the only butterfly known to make a two-way migration as birds do. Using environmental cues, the monarchs know when it is time to travel south for the winter. Some fly as far as 3,000 miles to reach their winter home.
To produce a pound of honey, foraging bees have to fly a whopping 55,000 miles. It takes about 556 foraging bees to visit 2 million flowers.
Every year, between December and April, thousands of humpback whales journey about 4,000 miles round-trip from Alaska to Hawaii where they congregate, breed, calve, and nurse their young. Whales can swim up to 100 miles a day, it’s a long journey for them.
Each part of the tree has a special job to help it grow and survive. As time goes, each tree has its own story to tell.
