"Saw these guys in Griffith park. About June 15 this year. I was walking along a trail near Amir's Garden when the lizard ran across the trail and over the snake. They both seemed startled to see each other. The lizard ran away after I took the photo." - Eric Richard

A whole pack of coyotes would hang out on this corner of Crystal Springs Drive pretty regularly for a few weeks. They were definitely aware of all the people watching, but didn't seem to back away. A ranger hung out nearby to make sure people didn't get too close.

"This seems to be a significant sighting. I wonder if this little beauty wandered out of Griffith Park and settled into a urinal in the basement of the LACC Chemistry building. Luckily school is on break and the urinal was bone dry. Rescued and currently living in Mount Washington terrarium." - Daniel Marlos

Great Egret (Ardea alba) Ardea alba

Description

This Great Egret is eating a gopher. This photo was taken in a small park within Griffith Park in Southern California. When I first saw it, it was standing motionless, and did so for about 8-10 minutes. I didn't notice it at first because it was so still, and when I did finally notice it, I thought it was some kind of bird statue... until I saw it suddenly move and spear something in the grass with it's bill. Suddenly, it had a meal of this gopher. It was fascinating to watch. The three photos show, first, the Great Egret picking up the gopher, which it then proceeded to slam down into the ground several times. (I suppose to kill it.) Then it began to swallow it whole (the second photo). And finally, I observed the gopher sliding down the Egret's throat. The Egret had to shake it's head and gesticulate often in order to get it to finally slide all of the way down it's gullet and finally into the crop for digestion.
