Remember the first game of peekaboo I played with a green anole (Anolis carolinensis) almost two years ago? Since then, I’ve found these reptiles to be a delightful bunch of lizards who constantly peek at me from around corners, through cracks and crevices, from behind the fence or leaves or branches, and from just about anywhere I look. So many of them live on and around my patio that, at least when it’s warm, I find it difficult not to see one or more careening about.
So on April 12 of this year when the weather grew warm and the sun shone brightly, a large female of the species engaged in yet another game of peekaboo with me. Unlike the first time when that female sat upon the patio wall, this most recent encounter took place with her clinging to the outside of the patio fence. The first image from that experience was posted at xenogere unseen. Here are a few more.
[I really wish that first photo had turned out better, but I picked up too much contrast from the sunlight on either side of her head; otherwise, it would have been a fantastic shot of her peeking at me over the top of the fence]
