Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

Lava Arch, Hawaiian Paradise Park, Hawaii. The ocean has eroded away the supporting layers of the lava flow, leaving a lava arch. The exposed rock shows the many layers of lava flows layered one on top of another like a stack of pancakes. The varying characteristics of the rock layers lead to differing rates of erosion and the subsequent formation of caves and arches.
