Perched in the top of my cubanelle, eying evil insects.

How much does he charge? I may need to rent his services.

Mine are all too tame. Little Minnie was a barn cat and is death on silent cat feets, but she prefers more entertaining game. I do wish she'd stop trying to ranch them under the stove, though.

Of the other two, one is too elderly and the other too aloof. I always try to keep a "one tom to rule them all", and a young boy to cause trouble. But the coyotes got my boys. So for now the reptiles and amphibians are safe.

I have a hard time keeping lizards or birds in the backyard... My dog chases anything that moves. I used to see quite a few larger lizards hanging around but now all I see is the babies. Too bad she doesn't go after the cabbage loopers, sphinx moths, whiteflies, aphids, and slugs.

The cats used to get the gophers now and then but I can't let them out back any longer because of the DOG.

When she was a pup, she would bury her bones at the base of my veggies. I had to start putting chicken wire around the garden.

I wouldn't trade her for anything though, so now I just rant about pest and disease control.

Nice shot btw DMF :)

Here's a shot of him giving me attitude.

(I think he's actually eying Minnie sitting in the jalapeno pot next over (damn cat!).)

That is so cool that he just hangs out there! I'd be out there with my camera all the time!

Gorgeous lizard! You know, this has been a weird year, it seems like every time I move a pot or mow around the garden I spook up several lizards, none as pretty as yours though. I've never seen this many lizards before.

Fantastic! Is it an Anole of some sort?

Just yesterday I noticed a little garden helper on the edge of my Chocolate Hab conainer...

Lovely, he's very handsome! I just saw one of his distant relatives on my porch next to the mint bed. A pretty juvenile 5-lined skink with a sky blue tail. He didn't hold still for a picture though.
