Out on the mudflat, mulling over mudthings. The tide is about to turn. Hitch up your pants and head for the beach.
Great photos ... they were lovely colours. I really liked the hummingbird shot ... that's a unfamiliar bird to me ... and I loved the blue of the Heron.
Nice captures. I almost got a Blue the other day but they're a bit too skittish for me.
I just stumbled here, and found a fellow salamander lunatic. I too have been searching for a Pacific Giant salamander and have only found one--trapped in a concrete fish-box and way outsized due to a constant rain of food from the intake. He was about 14 inches long. If I had known before I picked him up that Giants can bark, we would have found out if they can fly.
Thanks for the ID. Now that I had a chance to check - Metoothinks that dragonfly is a Four-spotted Skimmer.
Well hey now, did someone get a new camera? How did you get that hummingbird shot??!! I just saw a Nature program about them, kind of silly (F. Murray Abraham intoning a kind of weak script in classic nature doc cadences), the videography was unbelievable. Super slow mo film of their wings, tongues, dives, air battles - really something. The best part was the researchers at UC Berkeley figuring out how the Anna's males make that "tsip!" sound when they do their mating display dives - tail feathers, not vocalizing!
