A Teeny, Tiny Baby

How cute is this little guy?! 
I found this baby anole hanging out on the blueberry shrub while I was harvesting berries.


He is about 2 inches long and can't be but a few days old. These little guys have to fend for themselves from day one.



He was a little camera shy at first hiding out behind the leaves.


But slowly ventured out. You can see from the expression on his face in the photo above 
that he is still a little hesitant.


I hope he has a great summer in my garden!

  5. He's a cutie. I like the second photo of the light coming through the leaves and he looks like a statue.

  6. There are no such creatures in my Canadian garden. Just birds, squirrels and the occasional late night pass through of racoons dancing on the fence. Your photos are fantastic!

  10. Goodness, that's adorable. I especially like the 2nd shot, which has neat lines and light and really shows how tiny he is. Also the third, the peek-a-boo shot.

  15. We don't have anoles here and I'm really captivated by them. WANT! I have a very shy skink who lives under the patio steps but I've only seen it twice in 9 years. I'm sure that little guy will be big and sassy by the end of the summer. :o)
