Sea to Desert Wildlife

Sea Anemone

You'll have to venture out at low tide to find these colorful little guys.
Short Horned Lizard

He thought he was totally camouflaged. Funny thing is, the dog walked over it, and around it, and couldn't even see it.

Purple Shore Crab

Feisty little buggers.  He did not like my camera in his face.
Desert Tarantula

Found this guy on the trail last week. Took lots of photos. This is one of my favorites. It almost looks like an old man.

Southwestern Fence Lizard

The desert has canyons, and in some of the canyons exist lush green riparian areas full of wildlife.


Herring Gull

The Olympic coast is a bird watchers paradise.

Osprey

One of my favorite birds. You'll see the Osprey just about everywhere. I took this shot on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona.
