The Flying Kiwi website was created by Richard Seaman, a software engineer and talented amateur photographer with a penchant for traveling. Seaman's Life on Earth section shares great photos of reptiles, fungi, insects, birds, and marine life taken in countries around the world. For example, the Reptiles section links to images of iguanas in Belize and Guatemala; the Insects section contains photographs of butterflies in Costa Rica and Vietnam; and the Life Underwater section offers beautiful images of butterflyfish in the Red Sea. Select the thumbnail images to view larger versions of the photographs, and click on various text-embedded location and animal hyperlinks (e.g. New Zealand, Japanese Tiger Beetle) to connect to additional images. Although the Life on Earth section is not terribly extensive, it does feature some fine images of a variety of animals living on our planet. The site also offers a helpful selection of annotated links. Be sure to check out the Lizards of the Valley of Fire, and the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Fiji sections on this website!
