Sunday Nature Stills – 02/14/2016

I was looking at photographs tonight thinking about all the variety of animals out there. Even within a sub group of animas like reptiles, I find it amazing how varied they are to best function in their respective environments.

1) Gold Dust Day Gecko, Kauai Hawaii
2) Nile Crocodile, Grumeti River, Tanzania
3) Flap-Necked-Chameleon, Tarangire, Africa
4) Mwanza Flat-Headed Rock Agama, Serengeti
5) Green sea turtle, Oahu Hawaii

Sunday Nature Stills – 9/25/2011

Just one photo today.

This is a green sea turtle that I photographed along the south-western coast of Maui.  The turtle was in about 30 feet of water along a rocky outcropping.  It was about to dive to the bottom after taking a quick breath of air.  The water surface was a little rough; all the small air bubbles are from waves braking against the rocks that are just out of sight in the background.
