One of only two coots I saw there that day.
I wonder how its wing was injured.
This is the second bird I tried to catch drinking from this fountain. But they kept flying away.
Lizards, lizards everywhere…
I saw two land on a plant behind where I could get a clear photo, then this one out where I could get a *clear* shot, but apparently not a focused one.
Just flying around the vegetable garden area.
This grasshopper flew right past me and stopped on the cypress.
I kept hearing this hawk screeching while a bunch of crows flew around. It flew around a couple of times, but I couldn’t see where it landed. I kept walking, and eventually spotted it in this tree, still screeching 15 minutes later.
