Wildlife in the mountains

Unsurprisingly, the hills are alive with all kinds of critters. So I have been photographing the ones that stay put long enough for me to get out the phone and snap a picture. That's why there are more shots of reptiles, snails, and trees than birds or mammals.

The salamanders we've been rescuing from the pool seem to not mind a bath in ozonated water and crawl away when set on a pile of wet leaves.

Over the past weeks, we've seen (and heard!) a pack of coyotes, many deer, a hawk in the middle of swooping for something on the ground, and countless birds. I will keep adding to the album.

If you'd rather see it in larger size, here's a link to the Picasa album.
