i'm green

i found this cutie on my back door yesterday so of course i ran to get my camera. he will definitely make a great subject for some block prints, i'm sure.



another visitor to my house, nestling among the leaves of my giant grape ivy, i can't remember the true name for this great plant but i usually just call it stegosaurus because it is so huge and prehistoric looking.
speaking of prehistoric... one of the oldest reptiles around and one with poisonous saliva--how cool is that?? the kimodo dragon. he was posing nicely for me at the new orleans zoo. there were also some baby kimodo dragons--very exciting--but i did not get any great shots of them.

well, i think this guy has been around longer than the kimodo dragon, also at the zoo--thank god i did not find him at my house. you never know, being here in alligator land. actually, we are not in a swampy area but they aren't too far away.

I have taken a picture of a frog just like that but he wouldn't pose as well as you captured him. Great picture.

Hazel is gorgeous. She looks so contented! Your little green lizard looks like my Mr. Fred, who lives in my backyard. The froggy pictures are so clear.

Great photos, as usual.

Geezy peezy. I still need to send you photos of the fabulous watercolors decorating my home. Wonderful!

Awesome green frog photos! Cool. I have always had a fondness for lizards, geckos, and frogs. Thanks.

From cute (love that frog, and the anole) to scary! Thank heavens you don't have gators in your garden.

See you at the Spring Fling. Just one more month!
