Two discoveries last night led me to shoot some comparison images, which allows you to see the size variations between these species, but not the actual size of them. It’s not easy to get something to show size in the frame with most of my subjects, even when I carry little paper measuring scales with me (how many people can say they have one of those in their wallets regularly?
Coming up the front walk today without doing any of my typical surveying for subjects, I only spotted this because of how freaking obvious it was.
After having seen the pregnant female Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) several times in the front area, I stopped seeing
The other day while checking the progress of the various plants in the backyard (and whether they’d escaped further attentions of the local deer,) I spotted this Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) failing to be inconspicuous. They’ve been a lot scarcer lately, so I was pleased to see it – but it became apparent the feeling was not mutual. Realizing that
Just a handful more pics, some from yesterday, and I hope I don’t have to tell you where that quote comes from – granted, it’s not verbatim. But this Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) was doing its best to remain inconspicuous while getting some sun in the morning. This is being more accommodating than earlier, when it was perched on the vertical
While this doesn’t happen daily, I frequently do a patrol of the sprawling acreage of Walkabout Estates to see how things are coming along (as well as watering all the ‘tended’ plants, which can take some time anymore.) It’s not the best of ideas to ‘watch plants grow,’ really, because they’re better off being seen at least a week apart, but it’s necessary
Between being deep in projects, and not really motivated by the same ol’ photo subjects, I haven’t been doing a lot of shooting. I mean, there’s plenty to see around Walkabout Estates, but I’m trying to branch out a bit and do new things, which will likely require a trip someplace, while see that bit about projects. But I’m getting a handful of subjects while I’m
Nothing really to say here, just a couple of pics from ‘today.’ Too much like other recent pics, but that’s life – I have other subjects in the works, so something new will be along at some point. New-ish, anyway.
I found a Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis) basking on the Japanese maple out front, except that it’s no longer the Japanese
This wasn’t intentionally aimed for Earth Day, yet it’ll do, unless I find something else. As indicated in the previous post, I was slightly delayed in getting this out, given that it happened yesterday, but so it goes.
While doing yard work yesterday, I came down the back steps and found this indelicate display right out there for all to see.
These are, naturally, Carolina
I’m here to tell you from personal experience how nice it feels to accomplish something, and coincidentally, this ties in with the holiday, because today is Finally Make A Bare Minimum Advance Towards Goals Day. Yep, it’s the day when we get something done, no matter how minimal, that we can feel proud of instead of the usual background embarrassment over ongoing complacency.
For my part,
I was initially going to say these were from last night, but it’s getting late and some idiot decided the date should change at midnight rather than, say, seven AM. Whatever – they were shot at night, and obviously not right now. Good enough.
While I’m still leery of the temperature dropping to something inexcusable again, it’s been warm even overnight, and so scoping out
