Nature is our winner!
Mother Survivor prevails.
Moi advised us clearly :
Adapt or die
Boxer reminded us what Mother once nursed returns the favor:
Fallen tree nurses
Gentleman Karl hammered home Moi's message:
Change is the new norm
Bi-Czar was off message with his 17 about a vice not an ecosystem.
Serendipity illuminated the balance of power.

Corey Jo personalizes the bees struggle:

I loved something about all the visuals!
This necessitated another reading aloud.
So the winner emerged ...
is algae's job, not fungi's
in Lichen's troth
Thank you all for playing :-)
Well, maybe not Czar ......eeeeewwwwweeeeee!
