And Dipo's cats!

I am sure that is a Maleo at the end ... I watch all the Zoo programs.

Me too, Sea! I particularly love the one in Chester, England, and the Australian one - Tyronga? - that is just outside of Sydney.

I also like the Atlanta Aquarium show, and plan to go there this year if possible!!

RN, LOL Seamonkey.... I love the Maleo's not sure if my cats do.

I also watch all the Zoo and Aquarium shows. I think I went to the Atlanta Aquarium on a business trip to a conference, or was that New Orleans.... do they have one? Anyway, Aquariums are pretty neat, I know that Monterrey had a couple of cams.... https://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/live-cams

Seamonkey, that songbird symphony was just wonderful, although it could drive a birder crazy trying to mentally identify all the birds in those one second edits. I got a LOT of them by the photos, not the sounds. We just saw the frigatebirds (the ones with the gigantic inflatable bright red throat crops) on the ground mating and nesting in The Galapagos Islands in 2018. Had theretofore only seen them gliding very high and highly identifiable, in the sky in some places around the world. The inflated red throats are males attempting to attract mates. Nature is so strange and so perfect.

TNT, that aquarium looks amazing!

I love the Bronx Zoo best, but also Chester and the one where Jack Hanna is..

And Australia, others too.

Love Crikey! with the Irwins.

I have been to the aquarium in New Orleans.

Juju, those frigate birds were amazing.

I loved the owls in the symphony.

Especially the little burrowing owls. I loved seeing them on The Zoo, but I had the joy of seeing them in the wild, once, in Yuma, Arizona. Just adorable.

I just finished framing another Christmas diamond painting but it didn't turn out the way I wanted. First of all, the diamonds weren't a solid color like all the other kits I did. They were more like sequins where the color is see-through and the back of the diamond is mirrored. So it turned out nothing like the original painting, and much more sparkly.

It's nice but I agree that it's a bit lacking in definition compared to the original.

RN Thank you all for the kind words.

Strategist, that one took 5 or 6 days to finish, working on it at least a couple hours a day. Maybe more. I do it during my tv time mostly. The huge one I am going to share soon took me about 2 weeks.

RN I thought I would be sick of doing these by now, but the end product really motivates me. I keep hoping some of you guys will try doing some.

RN Here is where I get some of the kits. Price is right but shipping can take a month or more since it's from China. But you can choose any size you want and whether you want square or round diamonds. For me, square is harder to work with. They don't come with frames. The bigger you get, the more detail you see.

When you frame them is there glass covering the picture?

RN Yes, well, it's usually plexiglass that comes with the frames.
