Time eateth away at many an old delusion

The photographs were taken on August 1st in London.

I walked around lake Suolikas in Nuuksio today. I saw four Gavia stellata, two parents and two young ones. I wondered whether the birds had nested at lake Suolikas, which is a bit too large for them, or whether they had come from a nearby lake, which would mean that the young ones already can fly. The birds were diving and making noise (which can't be called singing).

I thought about Donald Trump and the "brand" of United States these days. It feels as if the United States is no longer a country that is good for human beings. However, if you are a racist or a killer of people with lots of money, you are most welcome, and nazis will be pardoned if the judicial system wants to look at the wrongdoings.
