Keep it Steady
I wish I could get so lucky! Great shot!
Sagebrush Lizard, maybe?
I would say it's a wolf spider, because of the eye shine you got with the flash, but not clear enough to ID further.
The leaves in the background may be aloe, but those flowers don't belong to the leaves. See my suggestion above. I have one in my backyard. Love these!
My husband, BugEric, helped me with the ID. Great spider!
Definitely a Scaup (bluebill). To me, based on the shape of the male's head, I would say Greater rather than Lesser, but someone else may disagree.
Thanks! The second shot is my favorite as well.
Beautiful! I take care of this species in a zoo in the United States. It is very neat to see them in the wild.
The green tinge makes it a little harder to be sure, but it looks like it has a red band near the base of the hindwing, which makes this a Cecropia Moth.
Yes, in both pictures :-)
