Peek a Boo

Found this baby anole trying to hide out on a hosta yesterday morning. 
He was playing peek-a-boo with me.





Of course mom was keeping an eye on her little guy from the tree.

 .
Always making sure that I wasn't a threat.


While baby crawled around trying his best to blend in with the hosta leaves




always watching me out of the corner of his eye.


How can you not adore this face?

  2. We have fun watching the antics of these little lizards in our yard, too. They are so cute!!! Actually, though, they are called anoles, not geckos. Wikipedia says, "Anole lizards are frequently and incorrectly called American chameleons or geckos, as they are not closely related to either of those groups. In fact, they are more closely related to iguanas. These misconceptions are likely due to their ability to alter their skin color and run up walls."
    Great photos :-)

  3. Cute little fellows. I've never seen any geckos or lizards in Ireland. Spotted my first frog this year in the garden. Your photos are great!

  4. So-o cute! I like the photo where he is reaching up to the higher leaf. They are such beautiful and interesting creatures. And your photos capture their beauty perfectly.

  5. Cher/Sunray gardening, thanks!

    Toni, you are right! What a mistake I made. I have corrected it on my post! Thanks!

    Why I garden, I am surprised you wouldn't have more frogs in Ireland. I am always so taken by wildlife in the garden.

    The Sage Butterfly, I liked that shot too. I wish it had turned out better. He was moving quickly and I didn't have enough time to set my camera properly. Oh well, those are the breaks sometimes.
