I have a Nikon CoolPix 8700D, which is an 8 mp automatic camera the size and shape of a DSLR - it was the camera that Nikon put out when they were figuring out how to configure the new 10 mp DSLR. It has an excellent macro-adapted lens, but is just about useless for telephoto. To get many of those shots, I had to meter and pull focus on other subjects, then move the camera over to the bugs to get the shot, which was more than frustrating....

If I had a million dollars, I'd be getting the new 10 mp DSLR and a good macro lens, and then I'd be able to pull my own focus.

Those little guys must be leaving some honeydew for the ants like aphids do. Did you figure out what they are?

Pacific Slender Salamander


Found this guy today under a potted banana. As a kid I would turn over every rock and piece of wood in my yard looking for these. It's nice to know there still around

I think this is a gecko. I have a ton of them that come out at night. This one was out in the daytime though. I think they are really cute.

I like that long skinny one. Occasionally I will find a black, purple, and blue salamander. They are really quick and never get a picture of them though.

Hooded Orioles are building nest in the banana leaves. I'll try for a pic.

Beautiful birds Sunfish! Here is a little critter hiding in a rose blossom, maybe to get out of the rain.

I'll need to get a better pic of these
I was working weeding the veggie garden area yesterday
Kept hearing a noise, didn't sound like a biord...so I was looking for a frog in the ponds
Well today clearing out the back 40' along the fence I found a bird nest in a bush
I had to hold the camera out at a weird angle to get the pic & of course a leaf blocked it

I have yet to see the mother bird
But have heard her going to & from the nest
They are blue eggs w/brown speckles
From looking online looks like they are probably just a sparrow
