A luna moth! I came across this one while walking near our house the other day.

A male anole lizard, puffing up its pink dewlap. It must have been feeling aggressive toward us.

Magnolias.

A five-lined skink. This one has a long tail, but Cash spotted one under our truck with a tail shorter than an inch. They are able to break off their tails when needed. Also, the babies hatch with beautiful purplish-blue tails.

Creepy swamps with long, creaky bridges stretching across them.

Trees big enough for three of me to hide behind the trunk.

Kids playing in a lake in April, when Colorado is deep in snow.

Snakes. This sweetie slithered across the trail right in front of us at Bond Park.

A snail. Did you know snails are related to squid?
