Weekly Photo Challenge: Nature’s Renewal

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nature’s Renewal

“The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope. “
Wendell Berry 

Tree Fern Fiddlehead
Australian Tree Fern Fiddlehead

A new frond on an Australian Tree Fern unfurls. The process of renewal in nature is continuous.

In spite of man, the only species to foul its own nest, nature amazingly and beautifully continues her process of regeneration. There is no doubt our planet will continue to renew and evolve. The question becomes, is  man smart enough to change his ways and survive or become just another extinct species?

Check out others thoughts on renewal.
