The green bird is a Schalow’s or Fischer’s turaco. These two are native to Central/East Africa, places like Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Botswana.

My camera is a Canon Digital Rebel, and the lens I used for this one, I think, was the zoom lens, which is the Canon 75-300 mm telephoto lens, and mine has an image stabilizer, which gives me very sharp photos.

I also like to photograph insects, and plants, so, I use a Tamron macro.
Look at the Nancy Brown photos, row 6, those are mine:

Are you a photographer, too?

Great shots! I have not done any SCUBA diving since 1987 on the barrier reef off the coast of Belize. If you ever get a chance to dive there, you will love it.

I love that sea turtle, and the expression on the face of your son! What kind of red fungus was that? Or am I totally off base? It looks like the fungi that grows in the woods, another place I like to go.
Were you in Micronesia for business, or pleasure?

My husband has been to Belize on business. He knows how to scuba dive, but, he didn't go while he was there. I would love to know what kinds of seashells you saw in Belize (and Micronesia), if any.
I collect sea shells, too.

Can you post some pictures of your artifacts?

I'd like to see them, and know more about that.

Oh wow, that sounds like painstaking, but interesting work.
Did you use clay, too, like they do, in "Bones", and other forensic tv shows?

Here's a couple more photos I took, of God's exquisitely detailed creations:



This was a page, from a book of my pix, I put together.

This is a plumeria flower, from my front yard, one summer:


I like the way the sun was shining on the monkey, up top, here:


Tony, you said we all see God in a different way, I see him as a Master of fine details. A great and amazing creative artist.

One other hobby I do, is plant milkweed plants, to attract Monarch
butterflies. This year's plants were very successful. I watched, one afternoon, a Monarch lay eggs on the undersides of the leaves, and that was in April, I think. Now, here in late June, I see the monarch caterpillars have eaten all the leaves and flowers, which is what they're SUPPOSED to do, and I'm now looking forward to seeing new Monarch butterflies emerge from their cocoons.

Plus, I keep busy year round, going to knitting meet ups here.
