Coastal Western Whiptail2356 viewsThese Lizards are inhabitants of Coastal Southern California and can grow up to 13 inches in length. They are very cautious and very fast. It was hard getting a photo of it. This was taken in the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu.

I believe this is a Yellow Canary. No fancy names. At any rate, he has survived the wrath of the Mongoose on Hawai'i. I really enjoyed all the different animals and birds that I saw on this trip. The warm weather wasn’t bad either.

Reticulation1970 viewsI couldn't get these Zebras to look at me so I had to settle for their butts. The pattern of black and white reminded me of a process in film developing called "Reticulation" where tiny cracks are formed in the films emulsion.

Honu’ea1965 viewsTaken 4/7/06
Honu’ea or Hawksbill Turtle is native to Hawai’i. The species is considered to be endangered but is slowly growing thanks to conservation efforts particularly on the Big Island of Hawai’i where they are protected by law. The Hawksbill can grow up to 250 pounds and feeds mostly on green sea moss or sponges. Their nesting period runs from July to October. Building the nest and laying eggs takes several hours and they can easily be seen along the coast.

While Weather Photography is an ongoing quest, I occasionally get off on tangents and focus on other subjects. Current Project: Humming Birds. Boy, are these guys tough to catch! The Mexican Sage (Salvia Leucantha) in my yard really attracts Humming Birds.

Double Teaming1820 viewsThese Seagulls are waiting for handouts. We could toss some crackers into the air and the bids would catch them in flight. Taken 2/20/06 in San Felipe.

Is That You Woody ?1849 viewsA rare sight in my neck of the woods, this Woodpecker was enjoying the warm Autumn Afternoon in the White Birch Tree in my front yard. Partly cloudy skies and a high of 70.9 degrees at my Weather Station in Altadena, CA made for a wonderful day.

Hummer2077 viewsPhot taken 10/8/05 in my front yard. The Mexicam Sage attracts quite a few Humming Birds. This year (2006) we had as many as 8-10 at a time fighting over the bush's beautiful purple blooms.

An Apple A Day2017 viewsThis Squirrel was really enjoying the apple. He munched on it for quite a while while I took photos of him. Taken at San Clemente State Beach Campground.
