After working on my indoor projects for a couple of days, I spent some time outside this afternoon with Sophie, Lulu, and the camera. There’s a whole group of juvenile brown anoles in the tomato pots, busy climbing and jumping and running around. The sun was behind this young anole, making its tail and neck look translucent.

This little one was perched on a tomato leaf.

This young anole was sitting on the edge of the tomato pot, watching me without much concern, even when I sat down next to the pot. It did show just a hint of a head bob and dewlap display though.

Casually checking out what’s going on up overhead.

This little one has lost part of its tail–it was probably a recent accident since the tail doesn’t seem to be regenerating yet.

A big male anole spent most of his day hanging around the pool steps, chasing off other anoles that approached.

And one wildflower.
