    Anyone know what kind of lizard this is? (Taken on the beach in Aruba.)

    Did you take that masked booby photo yourself? It's superb.

    Good pics, Worldtraveller.


    Based on my research, that might be an Aruban whiptail lizard, with its tail probably having been torn off and regenerated.

    One suicidal tarantula: We were a hoard of 16 hikers, we found this guy smack dab on the trail. Since it was probably 40 degrees or so out I doubt he could move fast. He certainly didn't flee our photographic efforts and many shots were taken at quite close range.

    100% agree.

    I especially love the kingfisher looking straight at the camera.

    Yeah. They make it easy on by gliding right up next to the cruise ship and posing. I was probably less than 20 ft from it at that point, and we were on the 8th deck.

    This morning I was out in my back yard and looked up into one of my trees that overhangs the cat enclosure.

    Big white blob.

    I got my camera and the angle is pretty difficult to get a good shot of the head. I did get a pretty good butt shot.

    Later my cats want to to go out into their enclosure to do their morning business so I went out too. My cats are 18 pounds and 24 pounds. It would take a really hungry bird to try for them but I didn't want to take chances.

    Finally the bird stretched its wings, did a poop itself that landed just outside the enclosure, and flew off.
