Death of beauty

A word from the photographer: “Winters 2020 and 2021, on the Caspian Sea coast, about 50,000 species of seabirds, including flamingos, have died. Employees of environment organizations collected and buried them. According to them, this tragedy was due to botulism poisoning. However, locals say poachers have poured poison into the sea. This environmental disaster has occurred for two years in a row.”
