I spot one of my garden chameleons on the jambu tree, where he normally perches. … Honestly, my first thought was “hmm, he’s getting lunch”, even though I didn’t think lizards ate other lizards. … Then, a second or two later – cuz, yes, they really were that fast – separated, although that took a couple of seconds, too.
Mosquitoes bite me – and they bite me by the dozens to hundreds while everyone else around me is left completely alone – and the white part swells up to between a half inch to an inch in diameter with the red bit sometimes 4-6 inches in diameter. … Well, you get the idea. 🙂 I don’t know for a fact that I’m allergic to bees and wasps and other of the more, ah, dangerous insects, but given my allergic reactions in general and with insects, it’s a pretty safe bet that getting stung by them probably wouldn’t be a good idea, you know what I mean? 🙂 So why, oh why, do I do some of the things I do? I was outside and saw a bunch of flying insects swarming in the area around our no-longer-in-use Dialog satellite dish, so naturally, I had to take a step closer to find out what was going on.
Stand out on the balcony in the morning for five minutes, and I’ll see at least four or five different types of birds that I can recognize and identify. Then there are all the other birds hanging out, flying around, chirping or otherwise singing their noises, but out of sight, and, well, I really have no idea how many there are, but it’s a LOT. These shots are just a few examples of what I see from my balcony on a typical morning.
These two doves – at least, I think it’s these two doves – have been hanging around our neighborhood a lot lately. I have to admit wondering if it’s mating season for them, but I’m too lazy to look it up just at the mo’. 🙂 Anyway, here they are, playing around. … Not just on the power line, but at the junction thingie on the pole where all the wires connect up and stuff.
