While the ongoing lockdown has resulted in shutting down of operations around the world, the sudden calm has resulted in several animals and birds reclaiming their space in nature. While reduced pollution saw fish and swans returning to the Venice canal, in Maharashtra, a large flock of flamingos gathered at a creek near Navi Mumbai.
Several pictures and videos of the mesmerising sight were shared on social media by many, including businessman Harsh Goenka. “While humans are locked inside, flamingos are putting in quite a spectacular show for the residents of Seawoods Complex in Nerul, Navi Mumbai,” he tweeted. Pictures of the occurrence were also shared by actor Raveena Tandon, with a caption that read, “A sea of pink.”
Since being shared online, the video has garnered over 30,000 views and prompted several comments. “Is it possible that #Coronavirusis the antibody of the earth vaccinating itself from the humanvirus,” wrote a user. Another tweeted, “Imagine, what will happen to these beautiful creatures once humans are out of their cages!”
