Hawaiian Plant and Animal Life

Instead of a wordy blog post, here are a selection of plant and wildlife photos of our recent trip to Hawaii.

Coming soon…geological photos, things we ate, and fun activities.

Wild Orchid, Volcano National Park, Big Island

Some kind of berry, Volcano National Park, Big Island

Oheo Tree, Volcano National Park, Big Island
I think these have berries.
If you pick some, first one should be tossed to Pele.
