  12. Wow, so much beauty in one post! Loves all of these diverse photos! The critters are wonderful (wish the two varieties of Anole could successfully co-exist, they're both lovely creatures), and that stormy sunrise absolutely breathtaking! I'd barely started breathing again (and getting over my envy of your Victoria, BC visit - I adore that place) when your magnificent and magical spider web photos took it away again! The reflection in the dew drop is also wonderful. Thank you for a really beautiful and special post!

I came for the week-end reflection constest of James, so I find your nightshot of Victoria's harbour absolutly gorgeous, but the lizzard you captured for the camera critter is amazing... And what to say about the Florida storm in sunrise light ! So dramatic, so stunning !

  21. Wow, the drops on the spiderweb shot is incredible! so uniform in size. I grew up in Houston with the green Anoles to enjoy, I'm sad to hear they are being replaced by the foreign Brown Anoles. People are always messing up the natural order.

  22. The anoles are beautiful. Too bad the green is disappearing.
