Digitally drawn crow, I love birds. They look so free when they fly in the sky. I also like crows because of their color.

My current avatar is a close-up of this antique Burmese statue that is part of my collection.
It shows a dancer as Sita in the Hindu epic the Ramayana.

Mine was taken fairly locally of the last of the Cariboo Camels. In 1862 a few businessmen bought and brought in 23 camels to serve on the packtrails that led to the local Cariboo gold rush. They figured that since camels drank less water and could pack more weight, they'd make a killing.

They didn't anticipate that the sight of the camels would stampede every other mule train they encountered though. A lot of them were turned loose and, for a while, wild camels roamed British Columbia.

I just like the incongruity of the photo and for a forum like 'Unexplained Mysteries' it seemed kind of fitting.

Probably recognizable to any of you Final Fantasy fans out there...mine is Cloud of FF VII. I'm a big FF fan. (Actually, I think I like Zidane of FFIX better, but Cloud's OK.) Are there any other 61 yr old men out there who like video games, in particular RPG's?

I'm heavily into music and find babies to be the greatest and funniest thing on the planet. So I find it funny that the baby has headphones and is saying "crank it up". lol

Mine is my fictional (I think) Alien friend Zarkor who morphs into my other fictional (I think) Alien friend Zerak.
