Almost night in the backyard - Skywatch Friday

A Saturday night in the backyard. The sun was going down behind the palm tree.

More sunset.

Blue heron on my neighbor's dock. The sun was almost down and I tried to use my flash to get better light but I didn't have much reach.

My shutter frog came out a little early. I usually only see him after it's dark.

A lizard on a plant in my screened in porch. They sneak in under the screened door but we have to make sure they don't get in the house.

  2. LOVE the toad and the lizard, and beautiful purplish heron. but those skies w/ the palms... melt my heart!

  3. Fabulous photos, Dina. Wonderful sunsets, plus wildlife, what a combination.
