After some rain in the middle of the day we had a pleasant sunny afternoon. There were anoles out enjoying the sun.

The palm trees were swaying in a slight breeze. There are lots of berries–birds love those berries when they migrate through.

I was surprised to see this dragonfly today–I haven’t seen many dragonflies lately.

Sophie checking out a scent in the yard. Sophie comes outside with me almost every day.

And then there’s Lulu, our 11 -year-old basset hound, who’s more interested in eating than photography. I got her to come out with Sophie and me today by bribing her with a couple of little dog cookies. Sometimes Lulu will strike a lovely classic basset pose and I’ll get a photo like this.

More often I’ll get something like this.

Or she wanders off following a trail in the grass.

She’s a girl with a mind of her own, but if I bring out a cookie, I can always get her attention.
