Anole1921 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.

Green Anole 11845 viewsThis species is native to North America, where it is found mainly in the southeastern parts of the continent. But, the species has been introduced into Hawaii. That’s where I saw this one, in a garden near Poipu Beach. He was feasting on insects and didn’t mind me photographing him. They can change color in a matter of seconds and have been inaccurately called the “Chameleon” of North America. In this shot he is perched on a White Orchid waiting for the next morsel to fly by.

Hawaiian Monk Seal 11547 viewsKnown to the native Hawaiians as ʻIlio-holo-i-ka-uaua, or "dog that runs in rough water". Its common name derives from its round head covered with short hairs, giving it the appearance of a medieval friar. The name may also reflect the fact that it lives a solitary existence relative to other species that collect in large colonies. When they come up to shore, the locals place ropes around them to keep people at a safe distance.

Hawaiian Monk Seal 21550 viewsThe Hawaiian monk seal is among the most endangered of all seal species. The population of Hawaiian monk seals is in decline. In 2008, it was estimated that only 1200 individuals remain. This Monk Seal was seen on Poipu Beach. He looks very content, enjoying the warm Spring Sun.

Kilauea Lighthouse1839 viewsDedicated in 1913 the Kilauea Lighthouse served as a pivotal navigation aid for ships on the Orient run. It is the northernmost point of the main Hawaiian Islands.
