Wildlife Insight: Bence Máté (Hungary) – Red fox and white-tailed eagle, Kiskunság national park, Hungary. Over the last four winters I have spent more than 200 full days photographing from a hide, and in this time there have been only three occasions when I’ve seen a fox and an eagle together. In this instance, the fox didn’t approach the hide, but deliberately teased the birds resting on the ice. They occasionally flapped towards him, which emboldened the fox more and more – he continued to provoke the birds for about 10 minutes before vanishing into the reeds.

“A designer from Sao Paulo is working with the city to make use of fallen trees to turn them into sculpture furniture to line the city’s parks, streets and plazas. Brazil’s largest city was slammed by several strong storms this rainy season that brought with them heavy rain, lightning and winds as high as 90kmph. More than 1,700 trees fell throughout the city as a result of the powerful storms leaving the city asking what it could do with all the wood and fallen trunks and branches strewn throughout the city. The city asked artists and other residents to find ways to make use of the fallen trees and one artist, Hugo Franca, has answered the call.
Franca has been carving massive benches and other pieces of furniture and play equipment out of the trees. Franca said he thought it was important to reuse the wood from the trees so as to not to have to cut down forested areas to harvest the valuable wood that was tossed around the city by the powerful storms. Franca takes the fallen trees and designs the sculpture and then cuts them to shape using a chainsaw. The pieces are then carefully sanded down and covered in varnish to protect the wood. Several of his creations are already being used as sustainable art furniture and residents come to them to sit and relax, have a chat or read as they enjoy the day”. – Adam Justice.
