The squirrels here in Davis don’t have to worry about very cold winter conditions, but they do keep themselves busy year-round. I love watching them scurry around, up and down trees, chasing each other. This one brought a big smile to my face when I saw them.

I love the way a Black Phoebe sits just over a small pond and makes quick jumps out to get insects. It’s very cool to watch! This photo doesn’t show that, but I love the bright colors in the background.

These colorful birds are one of the easiest to find out in the wild. A very loud bird who is not afraid of humans. They travel in small groups, constantly talking to one another. The California Scrub-jay is slightly different than the Western Scrub-jay, and is usually separated by the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

While walking through the UC-Davis arboretum I saw many beautiful trees, shrubs, bushes, and plants. The landscaping was immaculate and flowed around the creek. The water was so still it was like a mirror. I wanted to show a different perspective, a tree growing “down” from top to bottom, with this reflected photo.
