Nature Hike In De Luz

The rains have washed the earth clean again. Animals start to creep out of their hiding place. I went walking around my house and saw so much wild life. These picture were taken with my little D40: 55-200 lens. Not the greatest or up to date, but it works fantastic for a beginner like me. On this one little trip today, I took over 600 pictures.

Things to notice:
Water around goose- so cool!
Lizards tongue- blurry but amazing
Woodpecker- Look how blue the eyes are! I looked up this woodpecker breed and the eyes aren't supposed to be blue! Crazy!

The beauty out here in De Luz is just jaw-dropping. Sitting still, watching and listening was so relaxing. Enjoy the pictures.





















Joey and the Aligator Lizard











Pawprints in the Mud- see the huge one?





Can you spot the road runner?

Cool pictures! Love the water on the geese and the blue eyed woodpecker, that looks so weird. I hope your river is gone from the road now so I can see you at seminary again.
