He may need trimmed a bit narrower, but file size doesn't get a lot smaller. Cheesy  I call him Lizard Camper.  He tried to join us on our Heartland Pagan Festival journey last year by hiding out in our car topper.

He was not allowed to join us.

Here's my two for now. I snapped one of them on a trip to Tanzania a few years back and the other was a lucky encounter in my back yard. Ten guesses which is which Wink.

He's a little wide- the largest dimensions are 128 pixels wide by 200 pixels high. You could just rotate him, though, and not have to trim at all.

True.  I'll play with him this evening after I get done with my work at the fire department.  Which I need to head up and do now.

Welcome to the new Avatar Design Challenge!
Alright, alright, I'll play. lol. Smiley I don't know if this technically counts as Wildlife, since it's goldfish. But I argue that these fish ARE wildlife because A) they live outside all year round (including under ice in the winter): they are hardy. B) They are getting close to a decade old, most likely, and they haven't been eaten by hawks or cats or something else: age deserves respect. haha.

?

And I'm praying I did the size correct. I seem to have terrible luck with trying to get them down to the right KB.

There.  Turned him.  He's just too darned cute.  We get lots of these little guys all summer long out in my rock pile.  They're fun to watch play and hunt bugs.

Very pretty.  I had some beautiful 7 year old goldfish in our pond, came out one day and found a large, very contented, great blue heron standing in my pond.  Sad  My current fish are only about 3 years old, but they're growing up!

Also, looks like you've had good luck with your waterlillies.  This is the first year I got mine to flower.  I was so excited...!

We have a large pond in our garden with Koi, Goldfish and Ghost Carp in it. The Koi and The Ghosts are a decade old and still going strong. I have to admit that the Ghosts are my favourites-we have 3 at the moment (we did have 4 but the local bloody heron got one)-one is blach with a hint of gold in places, one is black with silver and the other is just pure black. We can only really see them in the summer (our pond is just short of 6 ft deep) when they are sunbathing, or chasing the frogs around. Last year we counted about 27 adults and just a swarm of babies-we couldn't count them, there were so many and we had to be so careful in the garden because we were constantly trying not to step on them!

The credit needs to go to my mom; it's her water garden. I just like to look at it sometimes. Smiley And yes, the waterlilies do do well! We get pink flowers; they're so pretty! I love seeing them opened during the day then closed at night. Too cool. I've got a purple one tattooed on my shoulder to represent my mom.

I'm assuming you're talking about the frogs had babies? That's so funny. lol.

This summer was the first summer the goldfish had babies!!!! My mom was soooooo hyped about it. Cheesy About a dozen (I think) survived and grew up. The pond is a little small for that many, so she gave them away then.

Not just the frogs-the Koi too! Wink I think about 5 of the Koi survived (out of 8 ) which is quite a good thing because male Koi tend to eat the babies.

Also, our pond is huge. It has  2 levels, connected by a small waterfall that has big chunks of raw Clear Quartz, Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Jade set into it. There are two large pieces of purple slate at the very top on the side of the pond, which look very pretty, so I have inadvertantly got an outside crystal altar! (Honestly, it wasn't intentional! I really didn't have a hidden agenda when I asked Noel to set them in, I just thought that they would look pretty, especially in the sunlight. For some reason, nobody ever believes me when I tell them that-I really don't know why not...  Wink )

Yeah, well our pond is the size of a large bathtub and has four or five adult fish in it. We were so happy that many survived and didn't get eaten! Smiley They had lots of roots from the water lilies and water hyacinths to hide in.
