Three Anoles for Wednesday

Leave a comment

I’ve missed posting for a couple of days due to family medical issues and associated medical appointments (three of those just in the past two days). But I’m back today with three anoles.

I thought at first that this was the big male that likes to sit upright on the fence–he was in the same area of the fence, and has similar coloring and size. No jaw injury on this one though.

And this one was posing on the fence, with a leaf draped over the anole and red flower buds to the right.

Just a couple of shots of Max in the yard for today. He’ll walk outside carrying one of his chipmunk toys, pick a spot to settle down in the grass, and just lie there for awhile surveying the yard.


When he sees me pointing the camera toward him, he’ll start wagging his tail as he watches me. Then he’ll suddenly jump up and run to me. He’s about to charge at me in this photo!

The big male anole was sitting upright on the fence as usual today.


It was harder to see the markings on his eyelid today.


One more of the big anole. Looks like he’s enjoying the sun here.

And here’s a glimpse of the squirrel’s face after it had turned around and moved up the tree trunk a bit.


Three for Friday

When I looked out the back door on this chilly morning, there was a bumblebee busy in the lavender plant.


I haven’t seen any bees in the flowers for awhile, so it was nice to see this bee visiting.


The bluebirds are finally starting to look like bluebirds again–they’ve gotten past the stages of juvenile plumage and growing in new feathers.



Max on Thursday

It was chilly this morning and never really got hot today. Max was enjoying the temperate weather and wanted to spend a lot of time outside in the yard. He brought one of his many toy chipmunks along with him.

Happy Max.

A Few for Tuesday

The big male anole sitting upright on the fence. He still has that injured area on his jaw which I’m hoping will heal. I can almost make out the “tattoo” over his eye–it certainly looks like those could be letters.


Closer look at the anole’s face. His eyelid “tattoo” might be BBA–maybe he’s a member of the Big Bad Anoles gang!


Here’s another big male anole, the boss of the gate area. He sits quietly and calmly when I approach him.


If I talk to him he’ll sometimes roll an eye at me.


Last for today are some lavender flowers still blooming on our remaining lavender plant.

I missed a couple of days, but I did get outside with the camera today for a few photos.

Where we live in northeast Florida we don’t really have a colorful fall season. Oak leaves do turn red, but that happens later, around Thanksgiving time. We don’t have an oak tree in our yard anyway–just a few in sight in neighbors’ yards. Right now our one tree that has leaves that turn colors is dropping them into the yard, so we have spots of yellow, orange, and red scattered here and there.


Our summer basil plants faded and died off, but they left loads of basil seeds in the soil. Many of the seeds sprouted and lots of little basil plants popped up. I took a couple of them and put them in fresh soil in a small pot, and I’ll see if I can get them through the winter.


My anole buddy up on the fence. He’s not in his upright position today, but it’s the same big guy looking down at me.


Here you can see the injured spot on the right side of his jaw (on the left in the photo). I think it looks a little better–I hope it’s healing.
