Squirrels, Birds, and Lizards - oh my!

Postby Nicki » Thu Jun 05, 2008 3:19 pm

Just pics of some wildlife I've seen lately...some of them aren't as clear as I would have liked, but oh well LOL

Gray squirrel

Great Blue Heron (you can barely see him in the second picture, he's hiding behind the bridge LOL and in the third picture he was flying away from me)

Here's a barred owl that we saw on a fence at like 9:30 or so in the morning! I don't think I've ever seen an owl during the day before (I think I saw one really early in the morning before-like right after sunrise)
Image

And this is a lizard I found at my aunt's house that was shedding.

Here he is afterwards

Cool...
That squirrel looks like it's up to something...
Heron's are SO hard to get good pictures of... they're SO skittish.
And I've only seen owls at night... and usually just flying by or something. I've never had a good photo opportunity with them.

That lizard is a green anole... looks to be in pretty good shape... I wish we had those wild around here.
Thanks for the pictures... I really need to get some of my latest up.

We have anoles all over the place around here! I always love catching them and seeing them change colors.
And that owl was really neat, he just sat there watching us, then would start turning his head around, then look at us again LOL.

a winged lizard?Image

yeah, it is neat to see them change color. Sometimes the color change is based on mood. It must have enjoyed getting it's picture taken :lol:

That's cool about the owl. It just sat there and let you watch it? That would be really cool... I probably would have taken 30 pictures :lol:
