Isn't that pretty! Makes me think ofour backyard in Miami.
Thanks Sally! At the moment we are having a really bad thunderstorm, so he's probably hiding under something, or has snuck through the cracks into the garage. I'm surprised we have power! sp
Oops, I almost missed him.
Hi Glenn, this particular individual has learned to change color! On a concrete block, he or one of his family members looked very dull and pale. thanks, sp
Definitely reminds me of Miami too. How close were you when you took the photo? On Andros we used to put an ant on a long stalk of grass and "feed" it to the newts. This offer of food-on-a-stick was gulped down everytime.
Hi Molly, I was quite close to him, not using the macro lens, and he was aware of me and vaguely knew he needed to get away from me, but wasn't terribly skittish about it. About your and Sally's comments regarding Miami, there are things about New Orleans that remind visitors of Miami (like me, for example, when I came on my job interview, I had the impression that Louisiana would be a lot like Florida), but New Orleans is truly unique, and living here, for me, has been an acquired taste. Since Katrina, we are all (those of us remaining) extremely attached to the city. thanks for looking in, sp
Love this picture...green is one of my most favorite colors.It seems that, I have a village of lizards living in my backyard. I'm scared of them but, they do keep my flowers nice and free of pests.
It takes a village to raise a lizard. Actually, I thought of you & hoped you'd see this non-scary picture. thanks bc! sp
