This image is from about a year ago from a visit to the Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA. I hadn't edited it before, I think because I hadn't gotten a clear view of the fox. Looking at it again, I kind of liked how the fox is looking through the grasses, almost looking as if he thinks he is hidden. Sorry, my camera spotted you!
In keeping with Wayne's postings of several rails, this is an image of two Ridgway's Rails. I think this species may be one that Wayne won't have (I could be wrong), as it is a Californian species, from the San Francisco Bay area in the north, and as far south as Baja California. Despite being one of the largest rails (about twice the size of the Virginia Rail), they are seldom seen, as they are elusive birds that manage to stay out of sight most of the time. However, I know a place in the San Diego area that, when there is a very high tide, they have to come up out of the marsh grasses and can be seen and photographed very easily. These were shot right next to the sidewalk, as the high tide drove them to the edge of the marsh.
A couple of days ago when I went out for a walk and to photograph the sunset clouds, as I walked back home in the neighborhood, I passed this house with the two trucks in the driveway. I liked the way the sunset was reflected in the rear windows of each truck. I thought it made a fun shot. Note the brake light on the one on the left--someone was in the truck, engine idling, as I stopped to take a couple of quick shots. I can only imagine what the driver thought of me taking the photo!
