pines, anoles, & ancient oyster shells

The weather has changed for the better.  More sun now, and warmer but not too hot.  Only 2.5 weeks left here, so having to work harder than we did before.

an Anole

These Anoles spend time in the sun on the wood of the deck .  They do not change color like a chameleon.  They currently are in mating mode and sometimes one will raise its head and a thin red, white spotted blade thing darts straight out from the pouch under its chin, while the lizard makes humping movements.

sorry.  no pictures of that phenomenon

The oyster shells I’m collecting on the gulf shore are ancient.  Fossil shells from a time when this island – a barrier reef – was a lot wider.  The oyster shells were originally from the bay side of the island – where there is still a wild oyster reef – one of the few left in the world.  The only sizable wild oyster reefs left in the world are in the Atlantic ocean below southern Virginia to Florida, and on the Gulf Coast.  All of the others are gone due to human development, and other environmental hazards.
