Leonard, Lizzie and the Longwing



Leonard watched Lizzie while the Zebra Long-wing laid eggs on the passion plant.
I almost called this post "Action On the backyard Fence"


Spring is Sprung.... baby lizards are on the way and lots of butterflies... woo hoo

GOOSE said...

What beautiful photos. I like to chase lizards. I don't see to many but when I do, look out. And no, MOM does not have any of her metal art left. She says it was WAY back when she was in high school and she has no idea where any of it is any more. If it was recycled by now maybe it's a beer can.
Blessings,
Goose

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

let me add my comments of how beautiful these pictures are. Of course we don't have that kind of butterfly around here,so that makes it extra special.

Aw, spring is here and love is in the air. I think I see a little spark in Leonard's eye.

That Zebra butterfly is gorgeous. That is a beautiful shot!

George said...

There certainly is a lot of action at your backyard fence. Just remember that I thought this blog is rated 'family friendly'.

Rose said...

Spring finally came to our neck of the woods, too. Had some serious flooding all around a week or two ago...some roads were closed. Down south of us about 20-30 miles they had some trouble with levees.

Love the green anole, BUT the butterfly is spectacular. Never seen one like that.
