    Gorgon JB, my first reaction was that raccoon was somehow wearing a hat, and then I looked closer.

    Nice jelly fish image from Dieter. Last summer, I saw a lot of those in the Monterey Bay. They were on the surface and I captured plenty of images, but the water wasn't nearly as clear. For that, it is much easier in a controlled environment.

  6. Coopers Hawk is my guess. Just learning. Out at the Merced National wildlife refuge today, the snow geese got a little flustered when this guy showed up, but I think he was looking for something on the menu that was less filling.

  8. Gordon, was your racoon dancing with the hat when you saw it?

    Here's a gingerbread cookie that looks like a starfish. ;)

  9. Mary, yes dancing on tip toes on the deck rail, whilst raiding the bird feeder. Beautiful starfish, I've seen these diving in the Caribbean.
     
  10. LOL. Re starfish: My nephew got this for me scuba diving when we were "island hopping" in the Philippines.

  11. American Kestrel I believe. He was watching the birds at my feeder.

  13. I just can't get enough of the warm hues of winter plant decay and all the textures and gnarly growth I can find in my local Panther Canyon.
