52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge


Week 14 #A2. Christmastime

“Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house,
not a creature was stirring…”

Hold on! This is Panama. There’s ALWAYS a creature stirring somewhere and I was outside when I spotted the toadstool. So…

Twas the night before Christmas when in a corner outside,
I spotted Santa Claus seated on his backside.
He looked overheated and weary atop a toadstool…

…and now you can complete the story any way that you choose.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!




Week 13 #26. Mealtime

A vividly colored visitor to our yard emerges regularly to forage for insects, digging with ferocity in the grass and dirt for something to satisfy his appetite. His long claws tear at the roots of the grass as his head bobs up and down, grabbing his prey. Today I happened to spot the Rainbow Whiptail Lizard emerging from one of his many holes among the rocks which surround our yard. He was not too far from my feet. What I managed to capture, as I snapped a couple of photos, was his mealtime. It was just another fascinating and surprising experience I was delighted to witness. I have included a photo I took on a previous occasion to show his entire brilliant, scaly body and naturally, photos of his mealtime.
