Lizards and Pine Cones, Oh My





Leonard Lizard is now about 7 inches long. I love him and he loves me.

Note: when  I say LOVE I don't mean I pick him up.

Our pine cones are small, about 3 inches long


 It was 5 PM and 64 degrees, we saw Baby go over to the grill and poke her nose at something then jump back in fear.

 I walked over and Buddy boy was on the ground to cold to move. He was hissing at Baby but could not run.



"Bob the Brave" picked Buddy Boy up and placed him in the sun on top of the pool timer to enjoy the sun with Leonard.

Bawhahhahaha "when I say LOVE I don't mean I pick him up". So I am guessing you don't snuggle up with them either.

Nice pictures of the lizards. That pine cone looks pretty big to me :) Nice snap. Have a great day over there. It's early morning and will get ready for work shortly.

Aw, come on Sandra, show some love for Leonard and give him a little pat. He is cute little fellow.

Your pine cones may be small but they sure are beautiful. I love that shot.

I've been looking at your 'life with the lizards pics' - great entertainment!

Nice to see Leonard again :) How long do lizards live? (I mean if they don't get eaten by other creatures)

We are so much alike....I name all of our "critters" too!!!

Lovely little lizards.. I am glad your dog doesn't kill them.. Lizards love the sun, maybe you are going to have a mild winter?? Nature seems to know these things better than humans. And to have lizards still around, then maybe you are being told something?
We have skinks (small lizards with suction feet) running all over the house. They make a clicking sound and keep flies and spiders down.

Great shots. I like not only the lizard on the fence but the lichen too. It is such a crystal clear shot. They are graceful looking animals. We have clicking geckos too but they make a mess with their poohs all over the deck.

I remember we used to have lizards basking in the sun alongside the walls but I haven't seen one over here for years. Not that we don't get the sun I just think people generally don't keep garden like they used to, its all decking and stones for ease, shame because we need all the wildlife don't we?

Ya, I love lizards from a distance too. Great wall shots. I have some decorative plaster-type geckos on the side of my house : )

I LOVE lizards! When I was in Bolivia for a year, I met a Gila Monster (??) on the pathway in the jungle. It was quite startling, since i'd never seen one before. It was as big as my GSD - or maybe bigger.

Great lizard pics! I won't ask what the yellow is on the wood in the first photo. lolo

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the lizard on the weathered wood but I am in love with your pinecone photo. I love pinecones!!!

Remington said...

Nice friends....so they climb up your walls? Kinda like Spiderman....cool!

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY DOGS it is no telling what I would do if I saw a lizard. One thing for sure I'd give it the Madi paw test. Mom says she thinks I invited this move. Any time I see anything new I raise my paw and gradually lower it while all the time getting closer to the object. Finally I give it a quick pat or two if it doesn't move or eat me then I toy with it for a while.
Hugs Madi

Great guys to photograph and I am sure I would,given the chance,but the friend part,I'm not so sure about.My granddaughter would be thrilled to hold one of those lizards.

Inger said...

I have a lizard friend named Sydney. He lives with my friend Rachael and is very, very old. He's a Bearded Dragon lizard and I cuddle with him whenever I see him. He's so sweet. I pick up our Fence lizards here when they are chased by the dogs. I carry them to the shed area where there are other lizards and they are safe from dogs anyway. Leonard is really big!

Ann said...

well I guess it's a good thing Jake wasn't the one by the grill or Buddy would have been a goner. I guess Bob is now the lizards hero for moving him to a warm spot.
There is quite a bit of difference in the size of those two.

Dee said...

The photo of the lizard on the fence is a really grand photo. I am not sure if we have lizards in Michigan...not sure I would react as lovingly. eek!!!

Rebecca said...

This would freak my daughter out! Like the festive header!

Miss Debbie said...

Well, I can't say I love lizards, but I do think they are interesting little guys! Bob was brave and kind to help the little fella out!

EG CameraGirl said...

Cool. I never see lizards here. :)

Betty Manousos said...

thanks for posting photos of those lizards...they are familiar to me, and so very cute!

amazing macro shots!

Chatty Crone said...

Bob will do anything to help true love - lol. Just kidding.

From tomatoes and avocados to Leonard and his kin, I love your documenting via words and photos the rampant growth in your corner of Paradise!
