A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.
From the archives of 2006, this flower is from a bush that grows in southern Texas, I have heard called both the Texas and the Mexican Olive. According to TopTropicals, it is called Cordia boissieri - White Geiger tree, Texas Olive, Anacahuita.
Who is looking at whom??
Me at the monkey or the monkey at me??
Is that an overbite or a snarl??
No, he/she is not playing tennis,
he/she would dump that ball in the water, I think he/she was filling it:
Twas a hot day and this guy/gal knew just what to do:
It is a bit hard to envision with just a photo, but, after watching this action for a few moments, I would have sworn he/she was washing his/her hands, moving the water from the left to the right, time and time again.
Finally tired out from all the shenanigans, decided to just flop on a rock and have a rest. But, not for long, seems they cannot sit still for long, moments later, he/she was up and moving again.
*An interesting thing happened while I was working on this post. I upload my photos to the Picasa storage area manually, as I want to control the place photos are stored and the size of the albums. As I was obtaining the URL for each photo I noted that Picasa wanted to know if I wanted to name this monkey (you know, the face recogition stuff ). My guess is that the face is close enough to a human face that Picasa thinks the monkey should have a name. I cannot remember Picasa doing this before on any of the other animal photos I have uploaded. Hmmmmmm!!??
I have found I am having so much fun with the camera that there are many more photos taken than will fit on my blog, Reflections From the Fence.
I post flora and fauna photos here. One subject a day, a flora and fauna 365 project. I managed to get past the first 365 and started the second year of this daily exercise. I made it till sometime in November of 2011. And, now, Flora and Fauna is just a regular ole blog, posting when I have something to share and the time to post it.
Some posts are wordy, some are wordless. My goal is to make them as wordless as possible. However, if I find something interesting during the posting/research process, I may share, ok, I will probably share. I hope you find the words and photos to be interesting.
Remember, by clicking on the photo, it will open in a new window, usually a larger view of the image, more detail, etc. Please use your back button to return here to Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
Thanks for stopping by.
A favorite photo from Bellingrath Gardens, near Mobile Alabama
