Small Lizard

Clearly, it’s early and my creative juices for titles aren’t flowing 🙂

Spotted this little guy in a park near my house. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you can tell that I actually have a few great parks nearby which I enjoy visiting with my camera. This lizard’s body is about the length of a middle finger. I like the detail of his scales, the blue around his eye, even the pupil with its ring of brown. I sure was glad he posed for me as I was walking past with my zoom lens!

I wonder what he was thinking as he saw me walking by, and fixed me with his reptile eye?

Noble Blue Jay

I’ve been wanting a good picture of a blue jay for a while now, and I finally got one! Very happy about this. I was at the Houston Zoo when this jay hopped onto a branch right in front of me and hung out in quite the noble pose. I like how he’s gazing off to the distance in this shot. Makes you wonder what birds think about…

Somewhere Over The…

This is my favorite shot from my trip to Bermuda last October. It was an amazing trip. I went with my best friend from college and we stayed with some extended relatives on my dad’s side. It was a truly wonderful week.

This shot was taken as we were driving along a scenic road, I believe along the south shore of the island. (I wasn’t driving) As we went along, we’d occasionally pull over into little scenic overlook spots along the side of the road. At one point I glanced behind us and saw this beautiful rainbow that had developed over the water. You could even see that it appeared to border rain. With the flora and fauna and vibrant blues of the water and sky (there were no filters on the picture, this is as it appeared to my eye), the appearance of a rainbow was better than anything I could have asked for photographically the entire week. Icing on the cake!
