Gecko’s and Texas Lizards, wonderful treasures

I’ve been offline for a few days and promise to visit your blog posts over the next several days.  Following more than 300 I know I’ll be kept very busy catching up.  Hope you are having a good week!

Here are a few photographs I snapped of some garden friends while working in the gardens yesterday – sometimes you just never know where the Gecko’s and Texas Lizards will show up.

Please feel free to use these photographs as reference images for your art.

  3. Totally understand what you mean about the reading of other blogs! Thank you for the photos and take it easy.

  4. ja! another gecko/lizard/iguana lover! i also take photos – way too many – of those precious geckos.. i also chase cute little frogs and capture them with camera! i’ve found that many of my female friends do NOT like geckos and frogs…. sort of like that spiders and snakes song from the 70’s!!!!


  5. These are wonderful photos! Great shots!! 🙂

  7. oh my gosh, 300? i’m overwhelmed at 100,
    i don’t know how you do it Mary.

      Oh I know – thanks! Many folks don’t post, so that makes for an easier time of it. Although when I’m a few days w/o checking in then my reader is over loaded and it takes a long time to weed through the post.

    What gorgeous garden friends.

  9. I have fond memories of those little green guys from when I lived in Texas. No critters like that here in Illinois!

      Hi Maggie – I’ll bet you do miss them. When we moved here from Maine I couldn’t believe my eyes, they continue to fascinate us.

    Little bee-yooties, Mary !!! Very good-looking small reptiles you have there. And VERY nicely photogaphed ! 🙂

  11. Looks like you had some great company!!!! 🙂 xx

    • Mary says:

      Lol, the only thing they didn’t do was pick up the shovel and help dig plant holes! Yes, they were very curious and quiet onlookers!

  12. They are fascinating, Mary! And so very generous to offer as painting reference. Thank you!:)

  13. I am reminded of the commercials for Geiko insurance….totally endearing they make this little creature!

    • Mary says:

      Thanks Cynthia, you gotta love these gentle creatures. Although when they go after bees they aren’t so gentle and wow they aren’t intimidated by them whatsoever.

    300??!! You are going to be very busy. Consider me taken care of. 🙂

    • Mary says:

      I know, it’s a bit much and takes me quite a while to get through all the posts – if I stay on top of it daily it’s not so back because many don’t post. But like right now, I’m way behind and know I won’t be catching up.

    so perfectly beautiful! I have a plethora of lizards and chameleons these day, sunning in the brightness of the florida sun.
