This little guy is about 7 or 8 inches tall and lives in the palm tree outside our bedroom window and under the eave of the vacant house next door. He screeches all night and we rarely see him during the day until right before dark. I couldn’t get much closer to remove the palm frond shadows without scaring him. Photo taken in Port Charlotte, Florida, USA, 28-Apr-2011 with a Nikon D5000, Nikkor 70-210 mm zoom lens, 1 shot, raw, hand held, f8, ISO 400, 1/350 sec, Aperature Priority

I love to photograph anything seaside and colorful! I am exploring many artforms and love the work of many here on Redbubble! I call all my dabblings “Kim’s Kaboodle”. I am also making mosaics from glass tiles and other media, drawing and painting. My art can also be found at link
