A short article on "flying dinosaurs"

We are all familiar to Pterodactyl, the flying dinosaur. But, actually there existed so many flying dinosaurs. The common name of all this “flying dinosaurs” is Pterosaurs. There are about 130 genus of Pterosaurs existed in the jurassic period. Here I listed some of them —

1. Pterodactyl

The Pterodactyls had a couple of very wide wings up to 40 feet long. But, these wings are not similar to modern bird’s wings. There were no feathers , their wings were made of a leathery substance. They lived near the sea in the cave & trees. They ate sea fish, large insects & other small dinosaurs. We found their fossils in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa.

My Original Poem : "Under the banyan tree"

An old banyan tree beside my  sweet home, everyday I see.  I take rest in peace  under its cold shadow. sometimes I only sit silently  but, do not feel lonely.  when I touch I feel its affection  I weep for a while remembering my mother’s face. when I was a child thinking and thinking  about my mom I lost her forever.  a cold breeze blows around me  under the banyan tree.

Pond is the only source of drinking water in this village. Do you believe ?

It is unbelievable that a pond (locally called Dighi) is the only source of drinking water for the entire village. But, it’s true. West Bengal is a state of India where I live in. Last year when I visited rural area of the southern part of Bengal I found this pond. There are only two arsenic polluted tube-well situated in the village. Around 300 families crowd an open water pond, locally called Dighi, throughout the day. lot of lotus in water [filth on the bank] [a perfect view] [bank of the pond] Tags :   India, Nature, Photography, Travel, Flowers, Flowers & Plants photography, Landscape photography This Post Was Published On My Steemit Blog .  Earned : $09.61 SBD Converted to USD @0.9951$ Rate = $9.5629 USD .  First Time heard about Steemit ?
