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.

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.

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.

Coastal Western Whiptail2358 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.
