    There are many avatars on this board.

    Why did you choose the avatar you have?

    My avatar is of a Buff Orpington hen. This is one of my favorite breeds of chickens. They are friendly and fun.

    I've loved amateur astronomy all my life. I own a nice telescope but do not use it often anymore. I love looking for the Messier objects. My avatar is M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy

    My avatar represents Psalm 91:


    1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
    2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
    3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
    4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
    5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
    6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof

    If anybody here watches the Big Bang Theory comedy show, they will notice this same photo on Sheldon's refrigerator.

    Mine is an avatar of my better half and myself taken at an Applebee's in Pikeville, Ky......not too far from where Brother OldUnionBrother lives. I chose it because it's a good picture of her, and me....to a lesser extent.

    Mine are loads of fun to watch and interact with. We only butcher roosters, and only once they get mean. I've learned a lot of spiritual lessons from observing my chickens, actually. It's amazing how God gave each one a different personality.

    Mine is the St. Andrew's Cross, A/k/a the Saltire.

    It is the national flag of Scotland.

    My family ancestry is Scottish, hence my avatar.

    Mine is a hamster with a pancake on his head. I just about fell off the chair laughing when I saw it, I mean "WHY". It is an avatar for someone who does not take herself too seriously.
