My DNA has now been sequenced and it turns out that I am more human than I had expected. Although I am more Neanderthal than most people (2.9% of my DNA is Neanderthal) all the rest appears to be Homo Sapiens. Not what I expected at all (well, except for the homo part, of course).
Try sequencing your own DNA. The test is $99 (plus a couple dollars for shipping) and took just under two months. I learned what my biggest hereditary health risks are and lots of other interesting stuff as well. Check it out at: https://www.23andme.com/

I worked above the clouds today. My job was to photograph a new telescope on top of Mount Haleakala and fortunately the clouds stayed just a few hundred feet below. I love watching the way the clouds swirl and dance with the mountainside and the sunlight.

This is when the Maui Pink Cap Swimmers become playful - no longer is it necessary to keep going non-stop in order to keep warm. And today was one of those fun summer swims.

Spinner Dolphins adore playing with floating leaves and this morning they were over the moon with joy as they had a large selection to choose from.

This is one of my favorite spots on my morning walks. And what makes it even more scenic is when a family sets up their beach umbrella exactly where these guys did today. I couldn't resist taking multiple photographs, both as straight-up photographs and using my camera's water-color setting. The location is so perfect that I couldn't take a bad picture.

What a perfect day for a swim out to the cove called the aquarium. The ocean was unusually flat and calm, and there wasn't even a breath of wind. I guess the fish must have been notified that I was visiting, because they were there in unually large numbers. I love living on Maui.

There is too much glorious color in this world and I simply am unable to ignore it. So here are a few shots from Upcountry this morning.
