Etc. Weekend Pictures

Some etc. photos from this past weekend;
A male eastern towhee, a female cardinal, a blue jay, a mourning dove & 5 indigo buntings.
A red headed woodpecker (the next day we realized there were 2 of them around.)
A macro shot--these flowers (which I have yet to identify,) were about 5mm across.
This anole was kind enough to allow me to get a macro shot of him, too.
We found a hiking path along the Abita River when we were down by the Trailhead. Here's Charles looking up at an enormous slash pine.

Awesome photos Lana! These are my favorite posts because you are such an artist and it comes out in the beauty of your pictures!

Lana Gramlich said...

Ello; Awwwwwww, shucks. *blush* You're too sweet!

Britta Coleman said...

Honestly, your photography is gorgeous. Love all the birds and that crazy lizard thing.

Monique said...

Lovely Lana. Those little flowers look like mini orchids.

that lizard looking thing would scare me to death. i am carrying around my camera now because of you. i haven't used it yet, but i have seen some interesting things i've been meaning to photograph.

Lana Gramlich said...

Britta; Thanks! :)

Monique; I wish I knew what the flowers are, but they don't seem to be listed in any of my field guides (& trying to use the internet to search for them is like looking through a beach for one, specific grain of sand.)

NW; When I was very young (around 7-8,) I actually had 3 of the lizards as pets. They used to love laying in the sun & having me rub their little bellies. I was a strange child. <:\
So often I've regretted not bringing my camera--these days it might as well be velcro-ed to my forehead. *L* The digital camera's so convenient--it fits in my pocket & weighs next to nothing. So much easier than my old analog (& all it's extra lenses, etc.)

As usual, wonderful pictures. You've inspired me to get a new digital camera, the newer version of the model you have (and I ordered the instructional DVD as you advised too). Now I hope to be able to capture some of the bird and animal activity in our yard too.

In graduate school, I was in charge of my advisor's anoles. I raised mealworms, fruitflies, and crickets to feed them. I still love anoles, but haven't seen any here in California yet.

Lana,
Thanks for these photos. I don't know what the flowers are. That lizard thing -- anole? -- is beautiful. Keep up the nature photography!

Lana Gramlich said...

Shauna; New camera? How cool! I'm sure you'll be as happy as I am. I look forward to seeing your pictures!
I'd totally forgotten that I had anoles as a kid until I saw them here. It was like one of those moments when a hand from the distant past just grabs you by the collar & yanks you out of the present, y'know? I even remembered how they smelled. The experience left me almost speechless.

Caroline; Thank you! Yes, the lizard's a Carolina (or Green) anole. When they get stressed or cold, they turn brown. They're all over the place down here.

Marvin said...

Great photos. I especially like your macros. The flowers are pretty, but I don't recognize them. They probably don't grow in dry, rocky soil. :-)

Lana Gramlich said...

Marvin; Thanks! No, they probably don't grow in dry, rocky soil. <:\ *LOL* I appreciate the differences between here & there, y'know? More variety, more to learn about.

Charles Gramlich said...

You should be shooting macros for National Geographic, sweetness.

Lana Gramlich said...

Charles; Yes. Someone needs to tell them that. *LOL*

Travis said...

The country around your area is just teeming, isn't it? Thanks for sharing the things you get to see.

Lana Gramlich said...

Travis; Always glad to share. "Teeming" is an understatement!

Gabby said...

WOW! The one with all the birds. How in the world did they manage to come together??? And those little blue birds are BLUE! I always thought bluejays had such a vivid blue color, but not compared to those tiny things. (We have a pair of bluejays that like to taunt my cats by swoop across the window.)

Lana Gramlich said...

Gabby; Sometimes we have over a hundred birds out there at a time (I kid you not.) The indigo buntings have been migratory visitors so far--they stop by for a few weeks around this time every year before moving on. I hope they decide to stick around at some point. They're so lovely!
Sorry about the blue jays bugging your cats. We don't have any pets, ourselves. We call the birds we feed "the kids" (as in; "did you feed the kids?") & they're more than enough for us. :)

The Zen Birdfeeder said...

Red-headed Woodpeckers!!! We just don't see many of them around here. Lucky you!

Lana Gramlich said...

Zen; We don't see many either, so they're always a special treat!
