Hubby knows all about Jude’s ‘Wildlife in the Garden’ challenge this month, and yesterday whilst he was putting up ceiling boards in the living area, called me to come quick because there were two ‘Pigeons’ outside. Now, I wouldn’t normally get excited about seeing a couple of pigeons, but to humour him, I grabbed my camera and was just in time to see them turn their backs on me. They were actually Doves, and were obviously not keen to have their photo splashed all over WordPress.
Looking around for more interesting wildlife, I spotted a Snowy Egret by the water’s edge.
As I traipsed through the undergrowth, I almost tripped over Ms. Igua who was contemplating going for a swim.
I think she was looking to escape from her admirer Mr. Iggy, who’d been ogling her from a nearby bush and was now hot-footing it over.
By the time he got there, she had plopped into the water and he was left with only Snowy Egret to chat up. What a blow!
Excitement over, I walked back to the house and was just in time to see a flying lizard. I didn’t crop out the tear in the insect screen, because I didn’t want to fool you into thinking that we really do have flying lizards here. That definitely would be wildlife overload, wouldn’t it?
Happy Monday to you all from a very warm and sunny, blue-skied Florida.
