There was a thump on the window screen over my computer table this morning, and I looked up to see a young mockingbird on the windowsill.

The little bird squawked a few times, and finally hopped into the bushes and disappeared.

No baby anoles today, just another big male anole. I don’t think this is the same one I photographed the other day–the coloring and markings look different–but he was certainly just as calm and cooperative about having his picture taken. Striking a pose here.

Turning to look toward the camera.

And showing off his dewlap.

Closer look at the anole. You can see the individual scales on his neck and head.
