Readers of both my blogs will be familiar with the many lizard pictures that I take. Most of them look pretty similar (see the one on my sidebar) but last month I was amused to see the clever way in which this baby lizard was sheltering from the rain. The photo was taken right after a sudden shower.
I find most caterpillars scary. But I still want to photograph them in order to document what types are seen in my garden. The above photos were taken earlier this month. The plant is the Sedum sexangulare/Tasteless Stonecrop.
And on the bougainvillea was this hairy black one. Below is a brown one on my tomato stake.
But here are my favourites! The tiny caterpillars of the Common Mormon swallowtail butterfly chomping away at these lemon leaves! I can't wait for them to turn into butterflies. And it's worth planting lemon saplings just so they can come and increase and multiply!!
