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.
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!
