Young Love

These ground squirrel siblings, although appearing quite sweet, will take any measures to literally steal food from another’s mouth. Tucson, AZ, USA.

Zebra Swallowtails

During a camping trip in Lake Louisa State Park (Florida), the zebra swallowtail butterflies were everywhere, but this was the only linked pair that I encountered. They were content to rest peacefully on a plant stalk, while I snapped all the pictures my heart desired.

Zebra-Tailed Lizard

This enormous zebra-tailed lizard had an even bigger ego. Upon my approach for a close shot, rather than fleeing, this brazen lizard decided to make a territorial display. He looks rather human in this shot. Saguaro NP East, AZ.
