I've kept on forgetting to post to here/not had enough time to, so here's a backlog of a lot of photos. All 800 pixels wide. Australia.

I have been using a very narrow definition of "common", but after chatting with our awesome moderator, I'm going to start broadening that so I can post more! Currently I am in Hawai'i, and on Friday I went on a hike at 'Anaeho'omalu. Now, I do not live in Hawai'i, so this is not "common" for me, but it is a readily available hike for most Big Island residents--free, unrestricted access, and not too long (although it does go along a sandy beach and over a lot of rough cobbles, so is not very accessible for people with mobility issues).

The very best thing, in my opinion, is the abundance of Green Sea Turtles (Chelonia mydas), who not only feed along the shoreline, but lie on the beach in the sun for hours, generally uncaring of people staring at them a lot and taking photos (you can tell the locals because they are not so fascinated by the turtles; I cannot imagine not being fascinated by the turtles):
