This young mockingbird was busy in the yard this morning. The speckles on its chest show that it’s a juvenile.

It didn’t seem bothered by the camera, though it did look over at me.

But mostly it was hunting for bugs.

We had some heavy rain for a short time today. Usually anoles duck out of sight when it’s raining, but this one sat out there through the whole storm.

When the rain was over and he’d dried off, he went back to putting on his usual dewlap display.
