Welcome to my Flickr 365 Project! I’m calling it my 365 Species Project, because for each day of the year, I will post a photo of a different species of organism. Today’s the first Saturday of the year, and I just happened to wake up bright-and-early with photos on my mind! So here’s number 5! See you tomorrow.
