Such Detail! [Jun. 25th, 2008|11:44 am]

Whatever group it was within The Intelligent Design Team that designed this little guy  clearly deserves The Artistic Deities award. I bet there were some Navajo and Japanese gods on the team. The blending of colors and the careful attention to the detail of the pattern seems to point that way.

What a gorgeous picture! These critters are really busy now. I've had one on my window sill off and on for days--it's using the young trees just outside the drip line so I see it on the trees (when it's usually green) on the ground (when it's usually brown to golden--the in-between color) and on my window shade in every color phase.

Today, my guy leapt off the window sill in a way I've never seen before, landing on the ground about 3 feet away, then jumped (!) up onto the tree trunk about a foot off the ground. From window (golden) to ground to tree, he was already changing color ("he" because of the red throat fan.)

Again, really, really REALLY gorgeous shot.

I love watching anoles. They come out to hunt when I water my compost in the morning. I love how they lap up the small bugs and then leap to capture a big one.

This guy was out at the land. He was momentarily trapped at the top of a hand cart so he froze and tried to be invisible.

I'm glad you like the shot. Thanks. :-)

Don't be surprised if you look now and the lizard picture seems different. My sister suggested that I lower the quality of the public version and try to sell the high resolution image. So now the version in my post is a much lower resolution version. :-(
