I just thought the markings on this butterfly were gorgeous. :D
This Duck had flown down to this pond and was raising her family. She was lame but seemed to be getting around all right. Smart duck though. The only predators that I could think could have gotten in there were Falcons or Eagles, and there was some foliage around for them to hide in.
Felt like a Q-Tip was moving around on my hand. Very cool (but the ants creeped me out :p)
And some video of me acting like a 5 year old :p
