Makana Peak1818 viewsBali Hai Or Makana Peak as the Hawaiians call it, was used in the movie South Pacific. In ancient times, men would climb the peak carrying special spears made of Hau and Papala. When darkness fell, they would light the speers and throw them into the ocean below.

Na Pali Coast1824 viewsThis fifteen-mile stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest shore of Kauai literally means "the Cliffs." Much of Na Pali Coast is inaccessible due to its characteristic sheer cliffs that drop straight down, thousands of feet into the ocean.

Na Pali Inside Out1796 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.

Green Anole 11828 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.

Green Anole 31821 viewsThis shot is a little out of focus but I wanted to show him (or her) licking water droplets off of the leaves.

Anole1906 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.
