Na Pali Inside Out183 viewsWe took a wonderful boat ride along the Na Pali Coast. They stopped at several points of interest along the way, the highlight being when they backed into one of the many Sea Caves. Quite a feat considering the fairly rough seas at the time.

Swallowtail181 viewsI chased this butterfly around my backyard for 20 minutes. I don't remember how many shots I took. Finally got some good ones. Here he is posing on one of the Agapantus flowers. I like the grenn, purple and yellow. Taken with a Canon Digital Rebel with a 300mm Zoom Lens.

Geminids 12-14-06179 viewsAs mentioned in the earlier photo, I had the WebCam set up to capture an image every minute. This is the second Geminid Meteor I captured. This one was in the early morning hours and the radiant had risen high in the sky and the metoer is going almost straight down in the middle of the image.

These images also appear in the WeatherCam Favorites section.

Anole174 viewsI believe this is an Anole also but has changed colors to blend in with the lava that he is perched on. This Anole is extending his Dewlap, a type of cartilage that extends from neck & throat area.
