Mass Observation Project: Were/Are/Will Be Animals

by Ricardo April. 05, 2011 5234 views

This MOP was rather ODD to me… As you guys know I'm very into animals and stuff.. But I couldn't achieve exactly what I had in mind.

My first mind thought was about pets.. I don't own any pet. My grandmother used to have that dog on the picture (RIP) but she died like 1 year ago. After that I've had no other pets… I had fish and tortoises… but They all ended up dying…

So I decided to tell one of the most common animals in my area… birds. I should photograph sparrows, but no one of them allowed me to photograph them..gosh they are ..grr!!
So I photographed these 2 birds, which this year seem quite common singing nearby my house which is heavenly.

Did you know Bugs are Animals too?

Well this is the reason I posted the bee (it was INSIDE my bedroom resting can you believe? What a cheeky bee, I didn't give her authorization to be in my bedroom, who the hell does she think she is? lol). Wanting or not, those creepy crawlies and critters are considered animals. I used to think they were from different things.. I don't know..I had in mind animals had to have something like ‘'meat’' on their bodies, like mammals, reptiles and fish have and so on!
But these critters are also animals.

I pet cocoons does that count? LOL


I didn't post a honey bee. I think they are too common for me… Whenever I want a honey bee shot is just going to the backyard and snap. But bees are very important, because they produce honey :)

And why bugs, birds, and those wild animals are important to me?

Because they are. I've always loved animals and plants…so they are the world to me. Love them and they will treat you well.. to be honest I've never been dog bitten, bee stung, or anything like that (oh wait once i was bitten by a wasp, but who told me to hug it? lool)

Why are animals important to the country or world?

Because it is a matter of diversity. I'm a shame to say one of the most beautiful animal in my country is practically extinct from my country.. the Iberic lynx… It is sad. Wouldn't you be sad to know one of your country precious animals is disappearing? Would you like to be known as a country that left them die?
Think about it.

This is a message from me, that I always liked ever since I saw it (and I hope my hermanita doesn't mind if I use it here lol):

''Change the world, before the world changes you'', save the Earth, save the animals, save your life!
