ATLANTA—Since my friends tell me they like my nature pictures on Facebook, I thought I’d move some of that energy over here.  So here come daffodils, hovering hawks, lichens, dogs, violets, fungi, clouds, people, fish, and if I’m lucky, another ruby skink.  I’m hunting for you, o iridescent, jewel-like amphibian.

Got a lot going on with camellias.  Maybe it’s homage to La Traviata, the memorable first opera I ever saw.
