Here’s an unexpected side effect of the pandemic.
The water flowing through the canals of Venice is now clear for the first time in forever. The fish are visible, the swans returned… The are even dolphins swimming!
Nature probably loves this pandemic… at least in Venice.

The water is limpid again, animals are coming back:
Giorni di acqua calma i prossimi, acqua trasparente, acqua per remi e animali da canali e da barene, giorni per riflettere su come aiutare la laguna nel nostro quotidiano. #Venice #nature #urbanwildlife #birdwatching #clearwater #beauty #sostenibilità #sustainability #water pic.twitter.com/EuPkJPPo7k— Venezia Pulita / Clean Venice (@VeneziaPulita) March 8, 2020
What a wonderful place without all those tourists and visitors. What a calm:

Nature probably loves this pandemic. Pollution is decreasing, noise is decreasing. Nature takes back its rights with a striking yet soothing beauty.
