Galapagos Hawk
Venice during the summer was great.  This picture was taken to show the timeless nature of the city and the water.  I waited until all of the modern boats moved on.
Galapagos Frigate Bird
There was nothing better to take pictures of but this beautiful monarch butterfly in a lush garden.  I was at the right place at the right time.
This is the same frog that likes to live in the plants right outside of our door.  He always comes out to say "Hello" when we walk by.  We call him Kermie.
Enjoying EPCOT and I came upon a dragonfly in the China area doing push ups.  It was nice for him to pose for me.
