I like that crayfish (crawdad).
The smaller of two lizards* common along the thousands of miles of stone walls on the Azores.

Apparently only one highly variable species.

The other common Azoran lizard, a bigger greenish fellow. I've wondered whether they are different or only juvenile/adult or male/female of the same species.

ANSWER: There is only one lizard on this island, the Madeiran wall lizard, introduced centuries back. The species (Lacerta dugesii) has variable color and may be mottled or striped. The European wall lizard has been introduced to Pico, but that is not where these two were photographed.

I can never get that close with a 100mm macro, excellent shots.

The closest thing I have is this little guy with the 50-135. Taken indoors in terrible light. Obviously a capitive.

European blackbird, but it is not actually a blackbird, but rather a thrush very closely related to the North American robin, easily detected by where and how it forages and how it moves.

That looks very much like the 2 species of Thrush we have here-Olive and Kurrichane Thrush.
How about a 2 headed Ostrich? X posted from the POTW thread.

Here's a whole-body shot of the Madeira wall lizard, a relatively small, slender individual.
