While visiting with, more like pestering, Selena, I looked out the office window and spotted a Green Anole, lounging on the top of one of the old ladder plant stands.  I grabbed my camera and went out to snap a pic, or two.  Was able to get only one, as he wasn’t too cooperative.

That reminded me that Selena has been spotting what we call a “Wood Lizard,” out near the garage door.  I slipped out and spotted him in the grass, he ran up the wall, and chilled for a spell.  I think I’ve identified him as an Eastern Fence Lizard.

Although the larger wildlife, Deer, Turkey, Bobcat, etc., are really cool, the “Littles” are really neat, too.  They’re also more inclined to hang out with us, around the house.  🙂

I’ll keep my eyes open for more.  Maybe I can spot something more interesting.

Until next time, Peace!
