Very easy to see at botanical garden for at least next few weeks? If you are in the area, we could go together. Look me up on Facebook.

Crossing the trail on the way back to the road from Carson Falls in Fairfax, CA (part of Mt. Tam?). There are lots of them mating right now in the Japanese Pool at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden. Some of my photos are in an online slideshow as part of an article in the Contra Costa Times yesterday about the Newts at the garden. http://www.contracostatimes.com/tri-vall...

Sheri, the boat captain, commented that this was unusual behavior and suggested that we move on to another area (The tail up in the air in the first 3 shots).

If you ever go to Belize - be careful. We were robbed while staying in the Placencia area by someone who broke in while we were sleeping. I woke up, so it was a terrible experience in addition to losing some of our things including my camera. Always stay in a place with a 24 hour guard and secure locks. (Our unit had a faulty french door locking system and no guard.)

If you look at the second photo, you can get an idea of the size of the whale shark. I don't think it was a baby, but I don't know for sure. They were huge. I saw a baby when we snorkeled with whale sharks in Belize - actually saw that one from the boat. It was much easier to find them in Mexico.

It helps to have a 300mm lens. We are hoping to go to Alaska one day. Do you have recommendations about where to go?

I have printed some of my fountain photos on canvas to display in our house. It is always a treat to watch them from our bedroom window, from my art studio in the backyard, or from the yard when the weather is clear.

I was pretty sure that they were Godwits. Thanks for the confirmation.

I thought of that too, but after the fact.... Love the color of the dirt in Sedona.
