Baby Lizards 1

The heavier and later local rains have led to lush greenery and a profusion of insects (the only one in 30 years I have been bothered by mosquitos here); as well as their predators. I had never before see the babies of the abundant local fence lizard (Sceloporus), as well as the more ground- dwelling Cnemodiphorus. Got some photos of the first with Lib's hand for scale; right or double click for size.

Maybe the osprey knows something "we" don't?

I like lizards, at least the small ones ;-)

Haven't seen the baby lizards, but I was just cutting up a small pile of rotting plywood for disposal and got one adult lizard and one scorpion. Bonus: it's tarantula migration time!

Yup-- tarantulas and big garish clumsy lubber grasshoppers. All getting squashed on the highway.

Lesbian clone lizards (from outer space, probably also Nazis)!

No, those will be #2 (;-))

I wish Steve Stirling would do a sequel.
