Exploring Nature One Step At A Time

Foraging, Camouflage and Bountiful Blossoms

It seems like forever since I had breakfast with a Squirrel.  When I saw this sweet girl foraging in the early morning light I strolled over to see if she would allow me to join her.  She looked up and I knew we were going to get along.  I took my photographs as she allowed me into her space.

A week ago I saw something shiny in the leaves and tried to photograph the anomaly glinting in the distance.  When I looked at the image on my computer I discovered the source of the shine was from Broad Headed Lizard scales.  On my next hike another shining surface caught my eye in the dried leaves.  On closer inspection I could see only the body of a Southern Coal Lizard as its head and tail were buried.   Now I know of the camouflage secrets of local lizards.

Bountiful Blossoms:
A beautiful field of blue waving in a light breeze greeted me as I headed home. Reaching to the light Baby Blue Eyes alone and in cluster were growing among the tiny Yellow Oxalis. Each blossom had a distinctive color ranging from nearly white to rich purple. They always create a spectacular display.

Have a Lovely Day on the Trails…
Love to ALL!
