From the Archives of 2008—4

“Things that don’t move.” That’s often my answer when people ask what I photograph. That means I don’t photograph many animals. But here are some I photographed in Florida in 2008.
1 Some may not think of barnacles, limpets, and tube worms as animals, but they are.
2 So are bryazoa, cousins to the corals.
3 The raccoons in Sarasota are more long-legged than those in Oberlin.
4 This green anole was investigating a bromeliad in our front yard.
5 Sad to say, the native green anole is being displaced by the invasive Cuban (brown) anole in Florida.
6 Green anoles have pink dewlaps.
7 This red-wing blackbird looks fierce.
8 This red-wing blackbird is fierce. He was able to chase away the hawk by dive-bombing.
9 White pelicans seem placid—except to the fish they hunt as a group.
11 The great egret waits patiently for its dinner to swim by.
12 Just kidding. My Ohio neighbors have a strong, if retro, sense of humor.
