Checking You Out

Somehow, I get the feeling that these iguanas are checking me out. I don’t know what gives me that idea other than I have three heads and three eyes staring back at me. They seem to be on alert status. 

This is a photograph that I took in Hawaii. I like the way these reptiles are camouflaged very well with their background. 

According to Vetstreet, “Although they don’t actually use verbal language to communicate, iguanas talk to each other through head bobbing and through movement of the flap of skin under their necks — called a dewlap. Iguanas will extend their dewlaps to say hello to each other or as a sign of being territorial.”

Diamond Head

Mikawoz Diamond Head

Diamond Head

This is the basis of a photograph I took of the Diamond Head Mountain in Waikiki, Hawaii while I was on a boat on the Pacific Ocean. I have digitally created a new imprint of the mountain.

According to the Go Hawaii website, “Known as Leahi (brow of the tuna) in Hawaiian, the crater was named Diamond Head by 19th century British sailors who thought they discovered diamonds on the crater’s slopes. These “diamonds” were actually shiny calcite crystals that had no value.”

Off in the distance, you can see sailboats as the sun sets in the sky. I took this photograph while on a boat in the Pacific Ocean off of Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Tree and Me

Tree And Me

This is a blue-grey bird balancing on a log in the water. This photograph was taken in the Honolulu Zoo in Hawaii, USA. I love the matching blues and greys in the bird and the water.

I can’t say much about this bird because I have not been able to identify it. Sorry, if anyone knows, please add a comment and I will update this post.

Old Timers

Old Timers

There are actually two tortoises. There is another one behind the front one. This picture was taken at the Honolulu Zoo in Hawaii.

According to the SoftSchools.com, “Turtles and tortoises are closely related. They are both reptiles from the same family (Testudines or Chelonian). The main difference between the two is that turtle is the name given to water-dwellers and tortoise is the name given to land-dwellers.”

Further they say, “Their life span is longer than that of the turtle with an average of 80-150 years and a maximum of 188 years.”

Here is a silhouette of a couple in love enjoying the sunset in Waikiki part of Honolulu, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. They are on their balcony seeing the last remnants of the night sky turn a beautiful orange and yellow hue into the night sky as the sun disappears behind the horizon.

Fiery Orange Ball

Fiery Orange Ball

This is the setting sun of an orange ball in the sky affecting the clouds around it. It was incredibly beautiful over the North Pacific Ocean near Waikiki, Oahu. Mind you, it was very quick. We were on a boat cruise and the sun disappeared very quickly so I had to be quick with my camera photos.

Hawaiian Sunset

This is a photo I took in Waikiki, Hawaii while on a sunset cruise.  Hawaii is interesting because the highs and lows in temperature for the day and night are very similar within a few degrees each day most of the year.  It was really a “Groundhog Day” out there.  Plus, I don’t think I have seen a quicker sunset in my life.  It was there one minute and shortly afterwards, it was down.  I chose this image today because of the cold weather we have been having so I can always dream and remember.

Please note a couple of sailboats on the horizon in the center image and the plane just over the land on the right hand side of the photo.

Rainfall on Ocean

This is a shot of Waikiki Beach in Oahu, Hawaii.  Over the ocean there are storm clouds in the sky and from the bottom, you can see how the rain has started on the ocean.  It was very difficult to get any photos as these beaches are almost always full of people swimming and riding the surf.  For once, I was able to capture it relatively quiet of people and in the pristine beauty of nature itself.  I have always enjoyed seeing rain from a distance.  On the prairies you can see the rain storm coming from far away.

Moon through Palm Trees

This photographic shot was taken in the evening while we enjoyed a Luau on Oahu, Hawaii.  The moon is almost hidden by the palm trees even though it is fully in the sky.  Who doesn’t like a full moon?  There is something spectacular in seeing the whole moon light up the night sky.  One of the most amazing things for me is the way the lunar appearance affects entire oceans with ensuring the pull and withdrawal of the waters surf.
