From lizards to cardinals to us (havin’ fun Georgia-style)

Hi Kathy! Nice to see you! 🙂
That’s a great shot of the green anole, wow! Congrats on capturing that cardinal! 🙂
Micheala, I’m not sure I have ever seen a green anole before! I loved how he flashed his pink throat. Mating, do you think? And YES! A cardinal, finally. Not too close, but close enough. Thank you.
Kathy – I think that green anole may well have been flirting with you 🙂
He WAS flirting, Laurie. He kept saying, “Hey baby, look at my throat.” He thought my camera-clicking was winking. lol!
yay yay i’m so excited!!! Vacation sharing!! Anoles are a favorite!!!
How come everybody in the whole world knew about anoles except me? Inquiring minds want to know!
You captured a male cardinal!! Yay!! Well done! I have never seen an anole before. Very cool lizard. Love the skink, too.
Everything and everybody looks all warm and sunny and fun. 🙂
Oh good, Robin. I am glad you’ve never seen an anole before, either. Phew, another one of us anole innocents! It WAS warm and sunny and fun. (Except for that night in the bathtub hiding from possible tornadoes.)
Hi, Kathy! You got your cardinal! And the anole, too, which is marvelous. Our houseguest is sure he heard an indigo bunting in our yard this morning, so tomorrow morning I’ll be out there with binoculars. Have fun in George!
Pamela, when we returned home our bird feeder was almost tipped over in the soggy earth. Barry asked if we should take it down. (We take it down for the summer.) I said, “No way–what if an indigo bunting passes through?” That’s the highlight of May. When an indigo bunting pauses beneath our feeder. OK, morels are a highlight, too.
Love the anole! Great shot! Glad things have calmed down and you can relax. Have fun!
Thank you, Erin. I was THRILLED when that anole stopped by to flirt. Yes, things did calm down very nicely. And then it was time to go home.
Hi to you too!
Barry pointed the camera at me, and well, heck, what do you do except wave? Right? 🙂
Love the cardinal. Glad to see you enjoying your vacation safely out of the path of the tornadoes.
I am glad the tornadoes didn’t hit in Oconee County. I am just sorry for the places where they hit and did such devestation. Do you get any cardinals in Minnesota where you live? (We don’t get any here.)
Cool lizards! And yay for your cardinal!
YAY for that cardinal. Better late than never, right, Karma?
Hi Kathy, it’s very nice to meet Barry’s family ….and Georgia Mom! As always, lovely photos 🙂
How sweet that you remembered Georgia Mom, Colleen! That is so cool. It was fun being there and visiting with everyone again.
Hi Kathy! Looks like beautiful weather and a fun family visit. Do you really have lizards where you live?
Marianne, these lizards (the anole and skink) were in Georgia. We have little lizards in the Upper Peninsula, too. I’m not sure their Appropriate Names, though. Our lizards hide under the wood pile.
Those lizards are something else! And the cardinal… What a lush green setting there in your family’s garden – enjoyed all the warm sunny photos!
I am glad you liked meeting my in-laws and enjoying their garden and back yard and the wooded area surrounding their house, Barbara. I like where they live because–even though there are houses all around–it’s still quite wooded. It was fun to explore their woods. But kept my eye alert for snakes.
The anole is giving you his best. He likes you!
He does, doesn’t he? I must admit I was flirting with him, Scott. After all, he was the first anole I had ever seen!
Kathy, I love anoles. You might have seen them over on my blog before too. The red flap is called a dewlap. It is used both for flirting and intimidating rivals and predators. More than likely he was flashing it for the latter reason but we can pretend he was flirting instead. LOL
Oh no, Jessica, you mean he wasn’t FLIRTING? He was thinking I was a PREDATOR??? lol! Yep, I probably didn’t look too attractive to that fellow. Much too big and unwieldy and gosh-darn-it she isn’t GREEN! Thank you for teaching about “dewlap”. Never heard that term before.
