Jennifer,
Those are special images that you posted this morning.
I would title them:
Love,
Comedy, and Eeeeeeeeeeeeek (in that order)
Are the birds an olive green or is that just what it appears like in the photo. I have never seen olive green birds. This is such a nice picture with the larger bird preening its little partner. Look how the little bird is tilting its head in enjoyment. This is realy a wonderful image. I am liking the hurricane fence background too.

Then the panther chameleon in its jungle-like surroundings cracks me up. Another good crisp colorful photo.

The arachnid photo is also so interesting. It has long legs and then 2 long reaching pinchers to grab food in front, correct? So a spider is an arachnid but an arachnid is not necessarily a spider, correct?

Greg,
Thanks for sharing a little spring with us. I can't believe you have that much blooming already. Isn't it early?

Here is one from me I took 10 days ago.

It has been a very warm winter. Hoping we don't have a late frost.

Love the pix this AM Jennifer, and of course all properly labeled. You are so helpful to us, we need to be reminded not to refer to critters by slang names...

Lorell- just perfect birdies.

life is good

greg

Lorell: the birds really are that colour. I always enjoy watching them, they seem to live as couples all year round and they enjoy preening each other. It seems that others are welcome, though, a few minutes after I took that photo a third bird came, snuggled up to the pair and was preened as well.

All spiders are arachnids, but arachnids also include scorpions, mites, whip spiders, whip scorpions, pseudoscorpions, ticks, camel spiders and a few other groups. If it has eight legs, it's an arachnid.

The two leg-like things right in front of the face of the daddy longlegs are pedipalps, something typical for arachnid and similar to insect mandibles/mouthparts. Daddy longlegs can chew food because they have those two additional "claws" (the ones between the pedipalps), spiders don't have those.

Your heron looks so graceful and I like the second one sneaking into the picture - photobomb, heron-style

Oh, and I mislabeled the chameleon. It's a Veiled Chameleon, Chamaeleo calyptratus.
