    let me get into photobucket and i will send you some bee shots!:) and the upload on here has a tiny size limit, i am too lazy to resize the pics down so far.....but looks like it might be worth the effort. I use 800x600 so they fit properly on my screen.

    LOL... thanks dude. So, baby hippo... yeah, that makes more sense. I swear, I'm really not as clueless as most Americans. I have been to other countries... like India, where the animals really do walk the streets. It was a little shocking at first. I'd never seen a camel before (that I could remember)... them things are huge! And in Peru I was chased by a disgruntled vacuna... but hippos scare me. I've seen them on the Discovery channel and they are MEAN!

    Hey, at least I'm not as bad as my husband... he saw a tarantula on a tree when we were in the Amazon and he screamed like a little girl.

    So that's why he wants to go to Norway, and he had us fooled that he wants to go for the fishing.

    I love spiders... except when they bite. Reminds of a funny story... when I went to Hawaii, BobF told me none of the spiders on the island were poisonous. So I thought it would be safe to mess around with them. Well, one of them bit me hard... hurt like hell, then itched... for a big welt on my arm. I said "dude!! you said none of the spiders were poisonous." He was like "yeah... as in they won't kill you... I never said they didn't bite!" LOL
