This is my life book- a place to collect a list in pictures of the different forms of life I have seen. I have tried to include the date/time/location of each subject. This list might be heavy on the birds because they are my current interest, but there will be other things featured as well. Some of the pictures are great, and some not so great- I never know when I'll come across something interesting and sometimes all I have is my camera phone on hand to capture an image.

These bees were spotted during late August 2010 eating out the inside of a dead bird on the sidewalk of Howes Street in Fort Collins, Colorado. These bees are stingless and they feed on rotting flesh rather than the usual humdrum plant-based nectar or pollen. You can read more (but not much more) about these bird eating bees here, and you can read about bee eating birds here.
