Lost Flower Meadows

This was taken a few years ago when there was a beautiful corn field and wild flower meadow where 1,000s of Poppies grew, turning the field a brilliant shade of red In July and August.

This is the image today. A new 700 home mini village is built on the land and this is all that remains of the field of Poppies (approx. 24.3 hectares).

There is far too much land & wild flower meadows that are been used to build new villages and out of town shopping centers.

The natural habitat for wild flowers and animals is diminishing at a vast rate. Making many species on the brink of extinction.

A few years ago I took this image. An owl, maybe a bird of prey hovering over the same field at sunrise. Where are they going to hunt now?

Is this progress?
