That is seriously cool, to have been able to catch that precise moment...

I've tried many hundreds to times to capture it, that's the only time I've captured the Green flash.

First time I saw a Green Flash I was 30 miles up the coast and up about 500-600 ft above sea level. It was stunning. I didn't know what I had seen. Less than a one second long event where it bloomed the most brilliant Green-Green and faded quick. I spent that night searching the net for hours until I found info. What I saw was a rare event known as the Green Flash. I was hooked I just had to wait for sunset anytime I was at the coast. But the conditions were never quite the same. Enlarged it looks better, but it was taken with an older 2 megapixel Cannon pocket camera so enlarge only works to a point.

OMGoodness. I am enchanted by all the family, furbabies, and enchanting settings and glorious colourings y'all have shared. Except maybe the gold bars. Kinda crass to my eye, but I'd take em over a poke in the eye any day.

I put the gals swimwear on my do-due list, and am praying for that poor fella in chaps; him looks a wee bit cold, needs some fur to keep em warm, imho.

Thanks, all! Even the art deco was a stunning treat <3

What in 5he world is that?
Just a local Alligator Lizard. I was watering the flower bed last summer and this little guy decided to climb rather than scurry off.

The southern alligator lizard (Elgaria multicarinata) is a common species of lizard in the family Anguidae. The species is native to the Pacific coast of North America.[1][3] It ranges from Baja California to the state of Washington and lives in a variety of habitats including grasslands, chaparral, forests, and even urban areas.[3][4] In dry climates, it is likely to be found in moist areas or near streams.

The southern alligator lizard measures from 3 to 7 in (8 to 18 cm) in snout-to-vent length (SVL). Including tail, it can reach a foot in length (30 cm).[4] It has a round thick body with small legs and a long somewhat prehensile tail that can be twice as long as the lizard's body.[3] Like many lizards, this species can drop its tail if attacked, possibly giving it a chance to flee. It lives on average 10 to 15 years, and survives well in captivity
