Coastal Western Whiptail751 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.

Is That You Woody ?448 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.

Survivor467 viewsTaken 4/7/06
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.

Hummer511 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.

H2510 viewsThe Humming Birds love the Mexican Sage (Salvia Leucantha) in my yard. They are very territorial and will stake claim to a favorite bush and confront other Humming Birds who try to feed on it.

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.

Gold Dust Gecko493 viewsThe Gold Dust Day Gecko is a very colorful lizard that averages 4 to 5 inches in length. It's body is mostly bright green but you can see specks of gold color along it's back. The top of the eye is bright powder blue. This little guy was hanging out at our hotel in Keauhou. He was very friendly and let me get close enough for this picture.
