Key deer are very tolerant on human presence and you often get to see their behavior close up. It was amazing to spend time watching them.

This was such a lovely mix of colors and textures. It brings back the smell of the sea, not that is all good

This is, on this day and at this time, my least interesting photo. I like this photo, and I as I have said before I have many photos less interesting than this one.

It is always special to see rare species, but this past week we were able to see several endangered species. We saw key deer, an American crocodile, miami blue butterflies and I am sure others. These deer were hanging out on the beach after a storm the night before. At the Deer Run B&B On Big Pine Key, Florida Keys.

Sun setting over old Biochemistry

Interesting that I find this in my Flickr stream. We just moved from the building from which this was taken to the building over which the sun was setting.

Unfortunately incarcerated Peromyscus

We caught this little Peromyscus in the garage where it liked nesting in our car's engine compartment. She or he (too much of a gentleman to look) got greasy from the bait in the trap, so it stayed with us for a few days to get cleaned up before releasing it into the park. It seemed to do ok with it's unfortunate incarceration, eating and drinking heartily, and when released, it dived energetically into a large pile of brush. I am not sure if it is P. maniculatus or P. leucopus, both are found locally.
