Brown Anole, this guy lives in the bird feeder and comes out occasionally to scare the granddaughter when she’s attempting to fill the feeders.  Then the lucky squirrels eat the sunflower seed that gets flung everywhere.

I think this is a juvenile anole.

We came across this caterpillar a few miles from our house.  We were attempting to “geo-cache” with the three older grandkids–unsuccessfully I should add.  This guy was almost six inches long.  Of course, one of the boys wanted to step on it.  Yech.  But I saved it’s life and we looked it up on the Internet.  It’s the caterpillar of the Royal Walnut Moth which isn’t even listed in “National Audubon Society Field Guide to Florida”.  That has got to be one awesome moth!

I really can’t tell one of these lizards from another! This one could be a skink or another brown anole.  I think I need to get William to identify these guys for me!

  1. Having bought in CT many brown anoles…that is not one with stripe. They are only brown or green or combination if you catch them changing color. Love your hair! And Jes’ too!

    • I have to admit again that I can’t tell one lizard from another. Thanks for the hair compliment. I’m having some trouble getting used to it. I don’t think I’ve had it this short in a few decades!
      Jes always looks good–long hair or short!
