        1.) What is the life time of a modern color photo?
        2.) Do color photos really show lots of details?

        At least, in my case, insects, the best thing are scientific
        drawings made by the expert himself. color photos don't help
        any much!

        But, maybe, in birds it is different. As birds are larger.

        Cheers   Thomas
