This female anole leaped off the fence and darted into the grass, stopping here and looking around carefully. She may have caught some prey after I left.

I saw this pair of mating anoles on the old fence this afternoon. The male normally grabs the back of the female’s neck with his teeth, but this male left that part out.

He had both his left legs thrown over her back, and seemed to feel that was enough to keep her in place.

The female wasn’t too pleased about the whole thing, and she just walked off and left him.

There she is behind him, while he seems to be trying to figure out what happened.

Lots of mockingbirds around right now. Here’s one on the grass.

And one singing up in the big pine tree.

Mockingbird spreading its wings as it looks for food, a typical behavior for mockingbirds. It’s thought that the sudden flash of white on its wings might startle insects and make them easier to catch..
