Never a dull moment in our house.... here's our Christmas morning... very early Christmas morning.... salamander!!! Total shocker finding that in our basement at this time of year. He'll be hanging out with us in an aquarium until I can find somebody to take him off my hands until next spring. He should be hibernating at this time of year but.... no chance of that happening now that the ground is frozen solid. I can't release this 1 outside at this time of year.... it wouldn't stand a chance.

Dec 26 and my climbing asters are still blooming...a very strange winter!

We are on the Outer Banks for Christmas week. Cool and breezy. Quite a storm yesterday driving through to get here though. Weather wisdom here is thunderstorm in December means snow within the week. We'll see if it pans out.

I am at risk of posting too many photos, but here are 4 and 5. A sanderling, dancing with his shadow...

I didn't have much good stuff this month, but I managed to cull a few ok ones out of it.

I guess most of us are busy with other things. I try to keep up on the thread. Nice photos, all.

Very cute--sanderling (new to me).

I'm no expert, but that reminds me more of a lichens or (possilby) a mushroom.

I meant to contact you, Viceroy, with thanks and regrets, but the adorable 1950's place where we stayed had no internet access (which I actually enjoyed). My husband's cousins and niece all descended on Brevard County at the same time we did, so our entire (too-short) trip was filled with friends and relatives that we'd not seen in years. But we did get in a short walk at Barrier Island Sanctuary, which was gorgeous. I at least am hoping to spend more time in that part of the country--maybe when the sea turtles are hatching.

Not really POM-worthy, but I was thrilled to see this Gulf fritillary (I think?) on December 26th at the Maritime Hammock Sanctuary.

And the sunrise view from the boardwalk at our motel had me up early every morning.

You let the judge be he judge of that, okay?

Seeing one so late in the year is so cool.
