This morning I went for a hike in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. The tide was very low, which completely changed the atmosphere and the type of birds present - - it was almost exclusively populated by shoreline birds - Dowitchers, Egrets, Sandpipers and Stilts. Here are a few of my photos of some birds, wildflowers and beasties . . . .

Aww, that bunny is adorable. What a gorgeous day we're having! (of course, I'm working, but at least my window is open)

la - isn't it? I almost want to get a bunny . . . (ok, I know that is a horrible idea)

edit - I haven't brought her with me yet - - they have all these no dogs signs, but pretty much everyone but me ignores that and brings their dogs - at least on the man made raised walk paths. I intend to bring her, but stay away from the paths going through the brush (like where the bunny was) and just walk or run on the other paths - - but any time I've taken a photo of something in nature you can pretty much assume Hanna was not in tow

now was that a close up of a lizard or a distant shot of some kind of California alligator? Sounds like you had a nice time.

sage - I have a soft spot for lizards - growing up we almost always had one that my brother had caught in some field, and they were always named Ralph. Having lizards meant we also almost always had meal worms in the fridge to feed them (you have to keep them in the fridge to keep them from turning into bugs!)

I love the ladybugs. Once I was walking in Muir woods during ladybug mating season and I saw millions of them going at it.

Nice pictures. I have a soft spot for lizards too. I set up a natural environment in a large tank... unfortunately, it's working out a little too good and the crickets have overpopulated it and ate everything, including my lizards, frogs, toads etc.
