Hummer1943 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.

Reticulation1843 viewsI couldn't get these Zebras to look at me so I had to settle for their butts. The pattern of black and white reminded me of a process in film developing called "Reticulation" where tiny cracks are formed in the films emulsion.

Honu’ea1841 viewsTaken 4/7/06
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.

Gold Dust Gecko1837 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.

Lady Bugs1808 viewsThis photo, as well as the other Lady Bug photo was taken at the 8000 ft level of Mount Waterman in the San Gabriel Mountains. I was surprised to see so many in one place at one time. Looks like they're enjoying themselves.
