    You in deep poopoo when Zombie Apocalypse comes! lol!

    Interesting shots! #2 is actually cool! (although I wish you had left a hair more room on bottom and top.)

    I used to live in Texas, and Florida! Every place has fish (even Colorado). I also used to be a somewhat serious amateur Ichthyologist... with an emphasis on Chondrichthyes, subbranch Elasmobranchii! ;) This would have been my chosen career field, except there are few jobs, and very little money in it.

    All pretty obviously fish.. except for the avian remains. Not really enough left to identify there... but based on the foot, some sort of dead wading bird...

    Charlie, you're one amazing guy. I can't even pronounce those names, let alone know exactly what they are, and you considered a career studying them as a Ichthyologist (which I've never heard of).

    We all have things we love! I know you have a lot of knowledge I don't have.. just in different areas! This is true of almost everyone! I have just been very lucky in that I have been able to pursue many of the things that have interested me over the years.

    Not that familiar with the fish in that area... but probably. Good of you to notice these and shoot them (the birds a loss.. but the others are kind of cool!). Most people would have just walked on by! :)

    It's a parody of a line from a song but it seemed to fit perfectly.

    I enjoyed that song back in the day and it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this thread ;)

    I'm so sorry ;(

    I have a compact 8gb USB memory stick in the stereo in my car. It's only about half full, but has over 800 songs on it. Most of them from the Dinosaur Rock genre ;) Everything from 3 Dog Night to Iron Butterfly to Chicago to Credence to you name it.

    We seem to have hijacked the original thread. Sorry about that OP, I'm done now.

    True...no money in fish studies. I currently work for CA Dept. Fish n Game ... hence my dead fish series.
