Sometimes the movie is better than the book. It's rare but it does happen. One could make the argument that, having seen the movie before reading the book, my opinion was skewed. I don't think that's the case. I saw this movie when it first came out 13 years ago, enough time to have effectively forgotten the detail of it. Reading the book, some things came back, but it seemed fresh overall. However, the narrative didn't feel it had any direction until it hit the second half. As though P.D. James didn't know what she wanted to write, found it halfway through, and no one told her to focus on that second half. Of course, the second half is what the movie focused on which is why I feel it works so well. That being said, I'm glad I read it. I've been wanting to read it for some time if only as an excuse to rewatch the movie. . But, maybe, just go and watch the movie. . Have you read this? Do you agree? . #boo#booksam #read2019 #pdjames #childrenofmen #bookstomovies #adaptation #themoviewasbetter #hardcover #books #novel

New research suggests that there are up to, possibly over, 18,000 species of birds! 🐦 Sometimes I like to focus on one feature then sit back in awe at the amount of biodiversity. Beaks for example; evolution has taken this one adaptation and turned it into thousands of versions! • • • #birdnerd #birds #beaks #birdphotography #cockatoo #palmcockatoo #parrot #toucan #pelican #stork #penguin #birdsofinstagram #evolution #adaptation #creaturesofGod #zoo #zoophotography #zoopics #animal #animalphotography

Textures I do not sure, but, I think that the genus of this frog is Smilisca. This genus is very studied for the different types of reproduction. For reason for the variation of each species. Some constructs an open depression and deposits eggs inside this one. Other species can vary like eggs attached to the substrate, eggs floating on the surface of the water, or eggs buried beneath the substrate. And other species have the generalized reproductive system, eggs deposited as a surface film in lentic water.
