Today I cut back the tomato plants. They weren’t doing well, and had pretty much stopped producing. I did this last year during the summer, and the plants grew back and put out more tomatoes for months. I’m hoping this will happen again. While I was cutting the branches I came across a little anole in one of the pots–not the one who was living there earlier this summer, but a different one, a very young one. I had to take some photos of course. Here is the little anole coming up out of the pot. Settings were f/7.1, 1/160, ISO 125.
He was quite comfortable climbing around on the remains of the tomato plants. Settings were f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 125.
The last anole to live in the tomato pot was a redhead. This one is more of a reddish tan all over, with of course his distinctive markings. Settings were f/10, 1/80, ISO 200.
He was keeping an eye on me as I took photos. Settings were f/10, 1/80, ISO 200.
One more of the anole. There’s a little red bug on the plant by the anole’s tail. Settings were f/10, 1/60, ISO 200.
I found some wild Portulaca flowers growing in the yard today. The flowers are only about a half inch across, much smaller than Portulacas you’d grow or buy, but still pretty. Settings were f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 125.
And last for today is this little green grasshopper, which paused in its wild jumping around to let me take some pictures. Settings were f/7.1, 1/160, ISO 320.
