Brown Anole On A Tree

My Grandmother used to call these brown anoles “tiny dinosaurs”.  It’s easy to see why.  I photographed this one on the side of a tree in Florida last winter.

Brown Anole Cave

This brown anole was basking in the sun on the rocks.  There was a large gap in the rocks, a cave relative to the size of the lizard.  It never strayed too far from the safety of its hideout there.

This Snowy Egret heads back to shore after fishing in the shallow Gulf Coast waters.  There’s some speculation those bright yellow feet may actually help the Snowy Egret catch fish off guard.

These birds were once prized for their beautiful plumage and the fashion industry hunted them to the to the brink of extinction in the late 19th century.  They’ve made a wonderful comeback and are fairly common now.

Pine Warblers can be hard to spot as they like to stay high up in the trees.  This one was making its way through the lower branches when I saw it in Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary near Naples, Florida early this year.

I tracked this Brown Pelican in my camera as it came soaring in from the Gulf Of Mexico.  As luck would have it the pelican decided to land on the beach just in front of me.  There’s no substitute for being in the right place at the right time.
