Photo taken on 09-03-08 in the hills of the urban area of San Jose CA..
Photo was taken in Sunnyvale CA. 08-05-08. Been finding them more in the area at this time of year.
Great pics. I'll be going for a hike shortly, so hope I can catch some great shots in the woods.
Photo was taken on my way home from work (Sunnyvale, CA). I had to get out my field guide on this one. It is a slenderwasp ans is parasitic to certain beetle grubs.
Last year I had quite a few butterflies visiting which was great.
Great pic. for sharing.
It seems that this year I do not have many butterflies in my garden.
This little rabbit just strolled across my sister's back yard while we were sitting on the patio. Guess he or she was enjoying the day as much as we were!

MISTAKE SAME ONE TWICE BUT I DONT KNOW HOW TO DELETE IT
This was taken a few days ago at a little pond near where I live. I counted a total of eight goslings and four adult geese. I think two of those might have been "subadults," who are still hanging around the birth family and not paired up themselves yet.
A nice family outing!
Great pics. Lily.
If it doesn't work this time I give up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Definitely "awweeee" alert ...
Conni "x" for the kitty ones ...
So there I was...Relaxing in front of the TV, when the kids yelled, "Hey Mom, come see the kittens."
First, thank you all for the positive feedback!
In case you missed my fauna gallery, here are a few deer pic's. We have a regular herd of deer (±3-dozen) that run the canyon at the back of our property. Every once in a while, momma will bring out the baby(s) to graze...
These were taken from my window (thus a little fuzzy) of my home office (O work for myself); I love being able to up from my computer and see things like this.
Cool pictures indeed! Thank you for sharing!
I adore skunks as well, and we have a few visiting our yard too. I just never seem to find the camera handy!
Well, mama skunk came sniffing around one spring morning, with four of her kids!
Notice the one youngster with the mostly white stripe? (far left) S/he proved to be the most adventurous of the group.
Everyone's pictures are great!! There is so much just outside our own backyards . . . my birds & squirrels make my day !!
What a nice picture! Thanks for sharing!
Received in an e-mail today from Michael Biro. Too nice and neat not to post it here:
Sea ... one hot dudde, eh?
Great pictures. Duck babies are soooo cute too!

I have a pair of Cardinals that visit me daily for food. Sorry the picture is a bit blurred - full zoom required and not a particularly good camera.
He's a really perky chap and very vocal, his "wife" is quite shy and only feeds once he's checked the feeder out and made sure the neighbours cat isn't about!
This picture was taken yesterday in the park. While on the trail, we were greeted by a mom red squirrel with 3 babies ... so cute and so small ... I personally thought they are too small for this late time in the year, ands hope the real winter won't start too soon, so the little babies have more time to grow and learn.
Thank you so much for posting these ducks and geese, what a bunch of characters
So nice! I love how you named them all!
Thank you for sharing your feathered friend's pictures with us! So great!
First of all a picture of my back yard
some of my closer neighbors.This Malcom. He is handicapped in the left leg. It is shorter than the right so he has quite a limp.
This is Carlton, a canada goose. He was the first to make a neighborly overture by coming on up to the patio. zhr id s grntlr snf not very sggressive featherperson.
This franklin, the only white goose on the lake. He is very friendly and recenty became the father of 2 goslings. One a mixed breed like his mom, and one a white one like his dad. Franklin eats from ny hand.
This is one of Franklins little ones, This is Little Frank
This is Hannah, Franklins mate and Little Frank's mom. Along with Gooster, the hybid gosling.
This is Salt and Pepper. Only God knows what kink of ducks they are. They are the only 2 that look lik this . they have a quack that souns like they have laryngitis. They are not fast like the other ducks so I put their hen scratch behind one of the bushes.
And lastly is Margaret Mother Goose. She is the oldest of all the geese. I've been told she used to reigh the colony with terror and was a champion gooser. But she is old now and the others are getting even with her. Dhe eats from my hand and even let's me pet her.
Marcia, you're very talented!
Andy ... for some reason I can't see any of your pictures on this thread! Am I the only one who can't see them?
A frog I managed to snap a pic of before he jumped into the pond!
Hey, you lookin at me!!!!!!!
Hey, maybe you've both discovered new species... better start thinking of an apt latin name for them.......
Can't find yours in my books either!
A new thread for ID assistance will be great!
Elena, I think we need a new thread on IDing moths...
I photographed this one recently and can't find an exact match in any of my butterfly and moth field guides:
I took this picture this week, but ... I'm not sure what kind of moth it is. Could anyone help ID it?
Thanks for posting these Donald, I love these guys, what lovely photos.
One of the highlights of visiting the US is the huge variety of woodpeckers you have over there - we only have one species!
.... let me say that again ...
Great visitors, Donald! And great pictures too!
I wish I had them around too!
These are 2 of my favorite birds that visit a few times a day. her's also the hummingbirds, but they are just to fast to get a good photo of...
Red Headed Woodpecker
I'm so sorry, Andy!!! You did your best, and that's what's important!
What wonderful pics! I love the way your racoon shot looks so natural.
I've never been forunate enough to see a red breasted grosbeak on my visits to the US, but you certainly whet my appetite to go looking for them on my next visit, whenever that may be.
A Rose-breasted Grosbeak at my feeder
I snapped this pic last week of a raccoon in my backyard.
Nice pic, Andy!!!
Awesome photos, everyone!!!
... great, great pictures here!
Ken ... ... nice tenants! I wonder how old they are!
My new attic tenants:
As soon as they are big enough to follow their mother outside, I will figure out how she got in and maybe close that hole before the squirrels decide to take residence too! Until then, I will check up on them once in a while!
Here is another lucky shot of a gazelle, well before I had an EOS camera:
Sorry it isn't too clear, but here is a picture of a gazelle in Jerusalem - I only managed to get this close because the unusually heavy snow of January 2000 forced it to come out into the open to get food. Used to live near the Jerusalem forest and catch glimpses of them all the time.
Fantastic shot - that's a red billed tropic bird! Wow!
A few of them were hanging around down south off the Red Sea town of Eilat. Of course when I went down to Eilat for the weekend I couldn't find them, but I did see another local rarity - the tropical brown booby. No photo I'm afraid - of course it appeared the one afternoon I didn't have my camera to hand...
I can't take credit for the photo (unfortunately), I have tried taking photos of longtails but they fly about so fast I've pressed my camera button and they're gone, all I get is a blur!
I did take this one though....
Oh Nicola!!! What a beautiful bird!!!
Bermudians know Spring has arrived when the Longtail is seen:
The other thread was getting full and took quite a while to load, so I thought it would be great to start a new one!!!
This pic is a tad blurry, but I got a chuckle out of it after I snapped it - A starling looking up at my suet feeder just moments before he flew up there!
