Would like to know the name of the berries.
Speck of white in photo. Bird transitioning from white plumage to summer time plumage.
I awoke to the sound of a blood curdling scream, raced downstairs to find my roommate standing on a chair screaming and pointing at a very large spider, screaming to kill it. So I said hold on a second and raced upstairs and grabbed my camera. She freaked out even more and said what are you doing, kill it kill it. I got a few shots of it and exclaimed that if I killed it, it would be like splattering an egg on the floor so I swept it up into a bucket and let it go, which she still wasn't to happy with saying that it was just going to come right back in. Anyway, for the longest time I thought it was a huntsman spider but now after reviewing old photos it appears it is not. I cannot see the fangs in the photos so perhaps someone with some spider experience can lead me in the right direction of identification. Thanks
Backyard in Colorado
Creeping around the edge of the yards.
Pulled in my driveway in Colorado to find these mule deer eating the bushes around the side of the house.
Even though it's right on the border of it's range i'd have to say that this is the Eastern Cottontail mainly because of the rusty colored nape and white tail.
I think I know what it is and why but would appreciate someone else's input on the identification. Haven't tried to id very many hares or rabbits in my life until now and I think I might be seeing things that aren't there. This was in my backyard when I lived in Colorado.
Thanks Kueda for the lead on the id. I was able to narrow it down to this yucca by the plant list of the park. Still not positive on this particular id so if someone knows any identifying features or if it is a subspecies, feel free to chime in. Thanks for the help. The spikes on this plant are pretty sharp.
I found this lichen on a hike around the North Table Mountain Park area near the ledges.
Philippines coloring. If anyone knows if this belongs to a sub-species, please let me know. Thanks
Native of Ecuador
From the angle of the shot, I can't see red or yellow coloring on the under wing so i'll have to chalk it up to being a Northern Flicker but it is either the Red shafted or the gilded Flicker.
Vine? Ground cover? Covered with pea-sized 'fruit' that resembled tomatoes when opened.
In a pasture.
In a pasture - about the same size and behavior as a Cabbage White.
Photographed on a trip to the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster.
My partner and I were at the base of "Cozyhang" on The Dome in Boulder Canyon. It was dark and I saw orange eyes glowing in the light of my headlamp in a nearby tree. At first I thought it was a cat, but then it turned and revealed its long ringed tail. We watched it for about 10 minutes then it scurried from the tree and in and out of the rocks shortly before disappearing in the dark. I left convinced we had seen a Lemur until doing some research on line. What an amazing creature to see!
Off-roading on my favorite trail in Colorado, after reaching the top of Radical Hill, I found these birds wandering around. They didn't seem to be to concerned with me but kept their distance as I tried to get photo. It was at a high elevation and in an area where I've seen mountain goats. Thanks to John8 for the id
I was able to locate the exact area from ten years ago from a photo I have of the chairlift.
In a corn maze - classic. It had a squared tail and dozens of friends.
In a corn maze!
Found near Wheeler Lake in Pike National Forest, Colorado.
Classic Wile E. Coyote cactus; semi-hidden in brush, wicked spines.
Off-roading while I was in Colorado I would often stop to get a few pics of the flora and fauna. This was taken on a trip to wheeler lake. It was after the largest water crossing and before the lake.
Two ringtails, peaking in and out from behind the rocks on the backside of the 1st flatiron
Weld County, Colorado, US
Animal had been watching me as I descended a gully in its general direction and caught its eyes in my light. It allowed me to approach and then observe it for approximately 20-30 minutes as it scurried in and out of cracks. Very curious and unafraid.
