Tree Frog, British Columbia
Photo and caption by Elizabeth Haines
Every summer, on the West Coast of British Columbia, we see many little pacific tree frogs perched on the flowers in our garden and enjoying the sun. Pacific tree frogs are very special for the West Coast because there are many places along the coast that are inhabited with bullfrogs that eat the pacific tree frogs. Lucky for us, the Sunshine Coast currently does not have any bull frogs, so we are able to enjoy these beautiful amphibians.

After a rest on this iceberg, this group of Adelie Penguins in Antarctica checked out several ledges before deciding that this was the spot to take the plunge, back to endless fishing expeditions to feed their chicks.
Bee, Purple Flower

After following bees for 30 minutes, I finally realized that they do a little dance before they take off. I managed to anticipate this one taking flight and caught it just as it was leaving the flower.

Kansas City, Missouri
Photo and caption by Michael Wyman
I was at a public garden in Kansas City, Mo. where these two species of lichen were growing on a bolder next to a small pond. With the macro lens I liked how you could see the lichen on top was growing over and not threw the lichen below. The color contrast was also very nice, specially with the cooler green in the center of the species on the bottom.

Fireworks, Hiroshima, Japan
Photo and caption by Sue Ann Simon
This fireworks festival is held in August at Otorii (sacred gate) at Itsukushima Shinto Shrine in Miyajima, Hiroshima. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Japan's Three Scenic Views. Otorii stands in the sea and is about 16.8 meters tall. The display starts during the low tide but by the end of the hour-long show, I and thousands of others were standing in about 12 inches of water unable to move because we were mesmerised by the show. Over 300,000 people come to the festival every year.
