Welcome to my online photo galleries. "PARADISE" is where you find it, and this website shows where I found it and what I found there. The HAWAII galleries include photos of the plants, animals, people and physical environment of Maui and other Hawaiian Islands. The OTHER DESTINATIONS galleries include photos of other places in the world where I've lived and traveled. Go to my blog, THE PRIVATE NATURALIST, to read my notes and observations about some of these photos and their subject matter. If you have questions about this website or its contents, e-mail me at "mauimike6 at gmail dot com."
