Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify

Photograph by Doug Couvillion: large fern fiddlehead in a Hawaiian tropical rainforest

These fiddleheads remind me of an animal embryo.  I suppose in a way they aren’t that different; newly forming leaves that aren’t fully developed yet.

This seemed like an appropriate post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Transmogrify.

Weekly Photo Challenge H2O: Fog Lifting

This is my submission for the Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O.

The Golden Gate Bridge partially conceals itself as fog lifts from the San Francisco Bay.


Gold Dust Day Gecko, I

Photography by Doug Couvillion: Gold Dust Day Gecko on the trunk of a tree

This Gold Dust Day Gecko was sunning itself on the trunk of a tree, probably hoping a tasty insect would wander by, when I noticed it.

 


Little Brown Butterfly, I

I haven’t been able to identify this butterfly.  It was at the Butterflies LIVE exhibit at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden so it may not be native to the United States.  If anybody knows the species I’d appreciate a comment.


Common Morpho, I

This Common Morpho was kind enough to sit still while I photographed it head-on.  It’s a large butterfly with brilliant blue on the upperside of its wings and brown with black and yellow eyespots on the undersides.


Wilting Camelia, I

The camelia flowers have had their run.

Their work is nearly done and their time is running out.

In a few more days this flower will be gone.


Eastern River Cooter

Photograph of an Eastern River Cooter on the Rappahannock River in Virginia

This small Eastern River Cooter was basking on a sunny log in the Rappahannock River as a paddled my canoe past it last July.  I don’t know much about the turtles of Virginia so I may have misidentified this one.
