    I had a vision of a thread that features shots of Plant Earth's inhabitants would be a great way for this community to create a collection of photos in an interactive way from different people featuring what beings exists in nature around them.

    At first I was thinking wildlife, but then I started thinking that all Earth's creatures can be caught in their natural states acting out their different natures. Since everything on Earth, even those modified by people like the domestic dog, are from the Earth, they should count too.

    So post the beings that you catch or encounter in your environment, whatever that may be - open to creative interpretation of course ~

    I'll start with this photo of a river otter that lives across the street from my apartment.

    River otter sunning on the banks of the St. Marys River, Georgia. We watched her raise some pups over the summer under the marina dock. The water is brackish, meaning its a mixture of salt and fresh water. The St. Marys River which flows from the Okeefenokee Swamp is the cleanest fresh water river in the USA. Wildlife is abundant in this estuary of the Atlantic Ocean.

    After flipping through my photos I realized I have a nice little collection started of reptiles:

    ^That's a cute one. I think he looks like a tropical/subtropical tree lizard.

    These four to six week old Big Horned Owls have emerged from their clutch nestled in a hallow of this centuries old Live Oak tree on the elementary school grounds. The community has been watching them as they have emerged from the nest in recent weeks.

    This is a photo I pulled up from last summer. These are wild horses on a Cumberland Island beach in Georgia watching the South Cut Fire in the National Wilderness Area. Because of drought conditions I think some 2,000 acres total ended up burning in the remote northwest portion of the island. I'm a reporter so the National Forest Service took me out on a boat to see the fire last June.

    There were 10 or so national and state agencies that set up a command post in town for about a month. Fires in a remote wilderness are hard to control, especially on an island. They fought this fire with axes and shovels, nothing else. No historic structures were damaged. But it did kick up wild life sightings else where on the island as they were displaced from their remote perferred homes, like more wild horses hanging out on the beaches and in the dunes.
