Up Black Hill

As John and I climbed Black Hill (in Morro Bay) yesterday,
these Central Coast California flora and fauna caught my photographer's eye.


This lizard reminded me of the ones in my backyard in Tucson (Arizona). It conjured a brief feeling of stability from our RV adventure.


I enjoyed the contrasting textures and colors of these plants.


These pine cones had abundant plant life growing on them.

Nice selection of images love the lizard and the textures and colour of the plants and cones make interesting viewing. The cones look great in any rotation even upside down.

Beautiful pix Levonne. I'm glad I don't have to shake my bed linen each night to rid myself of these guys!

Nice lizard! Is it small size?

Levonne said...

The lizard is small.

Here in Canada, lizards are pretty much a non-starter in the wild, so pictures like this really jazz me!

I grabbed an iguana in Florida a couple of years back, and I still revel at how incredibly detailed these amazing animals are. It blows me away how rich and diverse life can be, and this sequence captures it beautifully.
