Blue Jay at Blandair Park, 18 November, 2013

I like the soft blue of the jay against the light brown of pokeweed and dark green of the understory plants.

Six-lined Racerunner, 29 May 2013, Harmans, MD (Anne Arundel County. MD)

A well-named fast-moving lizard near the northern limit of its range. I remember finding them here about 30 years ago so it was nice to see some have survived despite new development nearby.
