A Whale Tail......... No way... :) :) :) Ok so you must know that I took these while on the mainland. They are California river otters. (So I am told) A total of 5 of them frolicking in a tiny lake. They were sooooo cute but very quick constantly diving to pick up small fish and weeds for breakfast. It was amazing to me since the only otters I had ever seen were in the ocean and not in fresh water (land locked) streams. I could have stayed and watched them for hours.

A group of orchids taken at Foster Gardens. I thought a watercolor effect might be fun and different. :)

A wild animal in nature that I managed to catch when out at Waimanalo Beach yesterday morning. :) :) :) This is a post for all of the nature wild animal followers that always post their awesome birds, moose and deer photos.. Just wanted to show you that we have animals out in the wild as well. :) :) It was a fun encounter. I dont recall his name but he is blind and the owner/rider was soooo nice to me. He was a show horse now retired. I even got to feed him a sugar cube. He loved it and didnt even bite off my hand. :) :) What a cutie!!!! :)

Oahu's shoreline out by past Hanauma Bay. The cliff formations and waves are amazing. We saw several whales out that morning though none were close enough to get a good shot at.. You could see their spray off in the distance and every once in a while one would breach. Guess they were out having fun.

Sunrise this morning at Sandy Beach. Not much of a sunrise but it was fun and refreshing to be outside in the salt air and watching the sunrise. A nice way to start the day :)

Every Friday nite at Hilton Hawaiian Village they have fireworks. Very very short but still fun. Annie and I decided to go out this evening and shoot something since I am back in Hawaii. Hurray!!! It was a lovely evening out with hardly any wind so I was able to get some reflections in the new Hilton Lagoon ... I know the rainbow tower is leaning and that is AOK since I was using my new 10-20 lens to check it out. What a fun lens. Not really good for stuffs like this but fun none the less. :) :)
