As this disastrous BP oil spill continues to worsen, I wanted to post a link to two recent photo slideshows:

Included in this gallery are aerial photos illustrating the extent of the spill, as well as horrific shots of oil-soaked pelicans getting bathed by cleanup workers. Another article, posted on the front page of NYTimes.com today, discusses the potential threat to Kemp's ridley sea turtle No. 15, currently living on Padre Island.
