Another huge post is required to cover this particular day, so I'll get right to it.
To start things off, a green anole I noticed out behind the house:
Working its way up a banana tree:
Couldn't resist this shot of it peeking over the edge of a leaf:
A few pics of some Mejiros:
Our yard also saw a visit from a Golden Plover, a bird that breeds in Alaska and Siberia and then winters on islands in the Pacific Ocean each year.
As you can see, it snagged itself a worm:
Which it then dropped...
And picked up again:
Searching for more goodies to eat:
Scoring another morsel:
Albeit a bit smaller this time around:
One last look:
A female shama grabbing some twigs for a nest:
And resting in a nearby tree:
Down at the beach, we saw a Cattle Egret working a hedge in front of a house:
Later on, we spent some time at Tunnels Beach. Since it had turned into a nice day, I took some photos of the famous shoreline, featuring Mount Makana, better known to most as Bali Ha'i.
Panning across the horizon from my spot on the beach:
A couple of my favorite shoreline shots:
And a panorama view I stitched together from four separate photos:
As Mom and I walked back to the house, we came across this Cattle Egret working the foliage along the berm:
I liked how the shape of its head curves along the same line as the leaf:
Is it me, or do we now know what kind of bird the Velociraptors turned into?
Thankfully, it seems more interested in smaller prey these days:
Panting in the afternoon heat:
Or yelling about having hot feet?
Kind of it to pose for me, though:
And some more action shots that I couldn't choose between:
Finally, once again I wrap things up with some flower pics:
