Just another pretty face
Blue-eyed shore crab, looking at her reflection in the camera lens. "Handy mirror!"

As seen by the BirdCam
Birds by day... Junco and box of heather Sparrow and cowslips, just opening. And sometimes a coon by night ... Just passing through. And with every batch of photos, a few shots of my bare feet. But I'll spare you those.

A mouthful of centipedes
Rows of spores on a hart's-tongue fern in Laurie's shade garden. Asplenium scolopendrium , I think. A cluster of spores makes up a sorus , from the ancient Greek for "pile, heap". In the hart's-tongue, the sori are long rows; in our common native ferns, the...

Bouncing back
Sometimes the resilience of tiny critters bowls me over. I carefully remove every hermit and crab I can find from the sand in the aquarium, then churn the sand around, back and forth, changing the water and churning again several times, to get all the crud ...

Pink beach
I made a quick run to the beach to pick up goodies for my hermits and crabs, but it's been a busy day, and by the time I drove into Beach Grove, the sun was setting behind me.  The tide was halfway out, and the beach, when I finally got there, was dark grey...

Fly on the wall
The first indoor fly of the year. He was still lethargic, since I've turned off the heat, so he stayed put while I climbed on a chair and reached up, camera in one hand, slave flash in the other, balancing shakily on tiptoes. I got two photos before he turn...

Sand dime
It's too small to be a dollar. So I measured it: 11/16 inch. The size of a Canadian dime.

Flash mob
Baby crabs love the light. Swarms of them jitterbug on the aquarium wall by a side light. Here they are, dancing attendance on a visiting Nassa snail. She may be eating a few as she goes. When I collect an eyedropper-full of these and look at them under the...

In the absence of raccoons
I keep the BirdCam loaded and aimed at my birdbath, where raccoons occasionally come to drink. Every few days I check the photos. Usually, they're of juncos and chickadees, chickadees and juncos, and sometimes a raccoon tail, just leaving. This week's take ...

New camera
One day without a pocket camera was one too many. I went out and bought another; a little Sony like the last one. This one is the DSC-WX350 . By the time I got it home and set up, it was too dark to take it for a run outside, so I took a few trial shots int...

So many choices!
Small hairy hermit in a shell that looks a bit too roomy contemplates a bargain basement selection. The little white one looks like it would fit.
