A few photos for today. I looked up the white and yellow wildflowers and found that they are Bidens alba, commonly known as Spanish Needle. On the positive side, they are favorites of honeybees as well as butterflies and other insects. On the negative side, they spread very easily and can be a pest. We just have a few plants along the fence and I’m keeping an eye on them. I do enjoy watching bees and butterflies flying around them.

Here’s a honeybee on one of the flowers.

A pair of mating brown anoles. The past few weeks have been a busy mating season for the anoles here, and in another month or so we should be seeing lots of babies. The male is on the left here, holding tightly to the female who would really rather leave.
