Kiss Me I?m Irish?

In honor of St. Paddy’s Day, a tribute to being green.

Northland Green Gecko, naultinus grayii

Green Lynx Spider, peucetia viridans

Green Hermit Hummingbird, phaethornis guy (we think)

Green Grasshopper, campylacantha olivacea

    Unbelievable… The Octopus even matches the textural quality of the ‘sea-shrub’. Do we know if it can match other plants? Or only that particular one?

    I always thought hummingbirds were peace loving creatures…

    they can match pretty much anything. i saw one disguise itself as a ferris wheel once.

    I enjoyed your St. Paddy’s concept. I don’t think the hummer’s a Green Hermit, though. Looks like a plain old Ruby-throat to me. The Gecko’s a Gold Dust Day Gecko (Phelsuma laticauda)from Madagascar.

    I’m afraid I have to agree with cpbvk – the lovely hummer’s not a Green hermit (Phaethornis guy). The bill’s a dead giveaway – P. guy has a long curving bill, and most hermits aren’t that iridescent.
    Good luck getting it ID’d tho – and great pictures.

    My dream retirement just includes that I am able bodied enough to enjoy it. I suppose I’d just like to live by water.
