Newly-hatched Anole Lizard

I was walking in the yard last Saturday and I saw this baby Anole Lizard trying to shake off  the flakey remnants from hatching. I must've been a few minutes late from witnessing the little creature ate off some of its yolk. I spent some time observing it explore it's new world. It did not take long for the little creature to start hopping from one leaf to the other. Life in the yard made me smile.

The yard has been looking drab since the onslaught of drought. A law had been implemented in our village -we can only water the yard twice a week. According to the last number of our house, our schedule was Wednesday and Saturday. Even with all the soaking, the yard still looked crisp and drab. Two days were not enough.. Well, fall is here anyway, and the drought is almost over. Most of the plants are well on their way to recovery.

For the meantime, I see so much life in the yard now. Hello little lizard.... I think I know who your parents are!

It must be a future star.

Tes how lucky you were to witness such an awesome event.

oh Tes, you are so lucky and blessed to have witness this, right on your yard, it's always a joy to see transformation to life. i have never seen a baby. oh, sorry to hear about the drought, i know you are not used to over there. here, we have enough supply because we had too much rain this year, but we were told they do not want people to get spoiled so we are still on scheduled watering, also like you, twice a week, but we manually water ours from the recycle. miss you Tes, but I know we all are busy and glad to see this from you. hugs, Beth.

Well, Tes, that little newborn doesn't know how lucky he/she is to be greeted by someone as charming and sweet as you. We're lucky you had your camera handy to share the little critter's debut with us. I wonder if they ever return to the family once they've headed out into the world.

It seems strange, to me, that Houston is having a drought...from one extreme to the next, huh?

This critter seems to be enjoying itself posing for you. Looks good for the critter centrefold though.
