These plants with their tiny blooms climb around and over nearly every rock on the Mangilao coast at 1,000 Steps.
The dark and chaotic jungle is difficult to photograph in most conditions. On this day, the light was just about right.
I have only seen (or photographed) a Såli or Micronesian Starling once before. These two seem to have found an ideal urban nest.
The jungle floor is an ever-changing subject, blanketed in color, texture, and contrast. (Taken at Masso Reservoir Nature Park.)
This is not the first time I have come across a young Yellow Bittern that has fallen from the nest. Poor little bird.
Recent heavy rains seem to have created the right conditions for mushrooms. I'm seeing them in a variety of new places lately.
Walking around Adelup after the rain I found many of these leaves wet and crushed under car and foot traffic.
This is a view from the trail to Tinago Falls in Inarajan. I think this will become one of our favorite hikes on the island.
There is an impressive colony of Black and Brown noddy or Fåhang in the CHamoru language taking up residence in Merizo.
We saw a number of Coconut crabs on our recent 1,000 Steps hike. This female was near the cliff edge and carrying eggs.
When I have a chance to explore the island, it is often the little things that catch my attention, like this Western Honey Bee.
I found a Yellow Bittern nest today. Two fledgling chicks were hidden well. I was just able to catch their emerging heads.
