Birds have always played a significant role in the life of humans. As the evidence for this statement, let us remember that in ancient times birds were commonly considered as creatures close to Gods and thus endowed with supernatural powers. Birds were common characters, mentioned in multiple legends and fairy tales. Just to give a few examples, let’s remember the eagle, sent by Zeus to execute punishment to Prometheus, or the white dove, that brought the palm twig to Noah as the sign of new land found after the Deluge.

One of the most majestic light show happens in the sky itself. A thunderstorm brings with itself lightning – along with some ‘Dolby surround’ sound effects as well.
Today we’ll start with two amazing nature photos. The first one is called Grasses of Pew Tor by Alex37 … love the atmosphere btw. The other one is right below and it’s from Fregona, Treviso, Italy. What a view. Let’s continue lower down in the illustration section. Again, I’ll pick two artworks I like the most. I am sure you’ll agree that Demos by Apofiss deserves to be featured .).
