We were having coffee out on our patio when I glanced up and saw this!
There is never any telling what might be in the skies around my house...ducks, geese, a variety of herons, hawks, airplanes of all sizes, helicopters, and once I even saw a blimp.
Guess we can add hot air balloon to that list. It was a very peaceful, quiet morning with a nice little wind pushing this baby along a fast clip.
Then the equivalent to a motorcycle gang flew into the neighborhood with an intimidating amount of commotion and loud honking.
Don't let that innocent looking face fool you. That is Pure D meanness right there. Lots of wild eyed aggressive behavior which I am pretty sure would end in me being trampled if I wasn't careful.
Want to know who is REALLY mean? That blond goose right there.
She has one fluffy butt, doesn't she?
I try to keep my distance. She is not nice.
But you know who IS nice?
This little guy right here. Can you see Mr. Anole?
I really don't know if this is a Mr. or Miss but based on the size of that chin (dewlap) I'm guessing it is a boy. If you look closely you can see a whisker coming out of the side of its neck.
So, I should be working on school and co-op stuff but instead the little lizard catches my eye outside my window so I grab my camera and take photos. I am easily distracted but he looked so pretty in the pink crape myrtle. And I was just thinking the other day how the petals of the crape myrtle are some of the best, all light and frilly. Some folks don't like these trees and they do have some issues especially with scale and people trimming this hideously which we call crape murder, but I love them.
This is my office mess and a bunch of books I need to do something with. It has only gotten worse since I took this picture the other day. Sigh.
All right now. I gotta get back to work.
