Perfect Harmony

You've met them both before but today they were in harmony with each other.






 His expressions never fail to mesmerize.

  1. The little green guy is so cute. Your Japanese maple reminds me of mine, or at least the one I used to have.

  2. Such a vibrant green. Our reptiles are generally drab. Big, but drab.

  3. Anoles are so pretty with their green coats and blue eyeshadow. I miss them!

  4. Lovely subjects captured by your lens. Love anoles and would love a Japanese Maple too. How much sun does this one get?

  5. Paul, I would love to see some of them...have you posted about them?
    I'm still so surprised at how close he lets me get to take pictures. I have no zoom lens and didn't crop these photos! He's a ham!

    Jenny, this maple sits under a canopy of oaks and gets some morning sun and then dappled sunlight throughout the afternoon with one final shot of sun in the evening. It would be much happier without that final shot but it does ok. A little leaf burn at the tips by August but it recovers and has such beautiful color otherwise.

  8. I usually don't call lizards cute, but they are cute. I found one that was about an inch long on my chair yesterday. I'm glad his green color stood out on my red chair. :) Very pretty photos!

  10. Came across your blog via Blotanical, welcome. I am rather fond of lizards and love they way you have captured the expression on this little guy's face.

  11. Your photos are amazing!!! I absolutely love them. The green guy is adorable. Thank you for the pick. You must have seen my photos. If you have just one tip on photography for me, what would that be apart from getting a SLR?

  12. Hi One, Yes I did see your photos and they are wonderful. You'll find a whole world opens before you when you get a SLR. The photos of the anole were taken with a 105mm lens which allows me to get macro images. The lens is amazing as it really picks up the rich colors of the subject. Thanks for stopping by and your nice comments - much appreciated!

  13. Our son was into reptiles growing up, well, at 31, he still is. We don't have anoles or lizards in the wild here in Nebraska, but he had a few for pets in the house.

    Whenever we went anywhere, he was hunting for snakes and such.

    Your photos are awesome!

  14. Nice lizardy thing! The best I've had in the garden is a fox and a frog - obviously not together, it's not like the frog was riding the fox in some bizarre paradoy of a hunt. I need some lizard action, but I fear it's just too cold.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
