Desert Spiny Lizard

At first glance, this was just another lizard. I wasn’t close enough to it to see the colors, or the beautiful scales. I just took some pictures, zoomed in to see it closer – but still didn’t appreciate what it looked like until I saw it on my computer screen! The Desert Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus […]

The Elemental Muskrat – Reshaping the Banks of Their Watery World

A Satisfying Day at the ‘Gamma Dogs’ House

Our daughter and her husband are taking their puppy, Ghost, to puppy classes and are making good progress in establishing themselves as the ‘Alpha Dogs’! This training is quickly […]
