Tamar, Israel

These are some pictures from a wildlife reserve near my house. Coexistence is everywhere in nature: snails live on cacti, and shrubbery will grow pretty much anywhere, even on brick walls.
But there’s a catch – this is a reserve because it sits on the remains of the Arab village Bashshit that was destroyed in 1948. I find it inspiring how even on the grounds of a battlefield, nature and beauty find a way to take hold, reminding us that coexistence is a natural part of life.
