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.

High Tailin' It Outta Here - - Round-Tailed Ground Squirrels
Photographed at the Casa Grande National Monument, Prehistoric Ruins. They scurry around, fast on those 4 little feet. They blend in well with their environment. They were about 20 feet away (I guess at those measurements sometimes, take that into consideration please - LOL). Sony was zoomed probably to just about 20 times. It was a very bright and sunny day. I cropped, and adjusted the brightness and contrast a little to get them to stand out from the same colored background.
And, he says, "I'm OUTTA here! Enough photos Carol!"
* To learn more about round-tailed ground squirrels, visit this page from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and of course, Wikipedia has data as well.
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.

Things I love: Family, Grandchildren, Rving, computers (sometimes, but not when they are being bad), family history, yorkies, techy toys like my iToys, photography.
I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
