We had the best day in Juamave, Mexico watching the Military Macaws that come into town to eat the pecans that grow through out the town. The people were all so delighted to share their birds in their Macaw Sanctuary.

During our Big Sit at the Cape Henlopen Hawkwatch this year just before sunrise Jeff took a break from counting birds to set up his camera hoping to catch the green flash— a very noble but difficult goal. We all patiently waited. FLASH! It was an instant. A wow moment. I don’t think Jeff got the photo but it was an amazing sight that is in my mind’s memory card. That is one of the best things about being married to a fantastic tour guide. He adds so much to my world. He not only gives me the moon but shares with me the stars and planets and various celestial phenomenon.
Visit Skywatch Friday–it’s a cool blog to visit to see many other celestial photos from around the globe. I find it fascinating to see other viewpoints on something we all share. Enjoy.

Wild Delaware is a coffee table book designed to promote the vanishing wonders of Delaware. Kevin Fleming–no relation–is a slower Delaware native that work fro National Geographic for many years. He decided to embark on this project to help other people see the beauty that lower Delaware has to offer. It is a fine tribute to this small state. The essays by Jim White, Derek Stoner, Jean Woods, and of course Jeff are a perfect compliment to the gorgeous photos.
For information on how to order a signed and numbered copy from the Wild Delaware website or come see us Saturday November 22, at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth for a book signing and meet the photographer and the other contributors.

My old blog is still located at www.elizabird.com. So if you are interested and you would like to see more of my world…check it out.
The Panther Chameleon is my new favorite blue lizard. I am so enamored with this little guy. I love how slow he moves and his feet are smiply fascinating. Madagascar, where he comes from, must be a fabulous place. It is high on my list of places to go. Hmmmmm–Travis is a senior this year…
