Kingfishers are small bright colored birds that live in both woodland and wetland habitats. Kingfishers that live near water hunt small fish by diving. Their eyes also have evolved an egg-shaped lens able to focus in air and under water while swimming. Kingfishers beat their prey to death. Amazing pictures.
Although it’s certainly not a new idea to combine landscaping with public transportation, we love the sight of these European trams gliding along on beds of grass. From Barcelona to the Czech Republic, Frankfurt, St-Etienne and Strasbourg, these public transit greenways are showing the potential of incorporating landscaping into good urban design.
