I had to glue the mandible to the skull.
Found out that carpenter's glue is not fire resistant.

Found: One big chunk of brain coral, a long way from home.

(I found this on the banks of the Pascagoula River, several hundered miles from the nearest coral reef. This may have been ballast from a ship transporting raw lumber during the 1800s.)

This little guy was found in my back yard, under a huge tropical plant growing back there.
I found him 2 years after I had moved in.
The weird thing is that I found him just minutes after hanging up the phone with my boyfriend, who had just become my ex. After 1 1/2 years, we broke up, and I was heartbroken. I was actually in physical pain, my stomach hurt.
I went downstairs to the yard, with the intent of working with the plants, and instead found this little statue.
His expression summed up exactly what I was feeling.
There is some indecipherable writing on the back, but I really have no idea what his history is. It was too weird that he came to be found in that exact moment after so much time that I had already been living there.

Hopefully this fits the theme. This and my other entries to this contest are the only photos I have where the subjects were arranged by me rather than shot as found. Think Museum of Natural History.

Various farm implements & parts found in an old apple orchard we have been clearing at the campground.

The orchard has been neglected & grown over for about 40 years.

We set them up next to the old barn as a display for the campers to see.
