Lizards of Texas

Lizards on the Block

    Lizards really aren’t my thing. I don’t think that Chunky Monkey would like him as a playmate so much,lol.

    We have lots of them here in Alabama but I don’t think I have ever seen one like this. Wonder what kind it is?

    That’s a female, probably a ruby-throated, but it’s nearly impossible to tell, even for bird experts, what species as all the females look alike, no matter which species.

    The two you will most likely see are the ruby-throated and the rufous.

    I miss hummingbirds and crickets!

    There are a couple other species you might see, but the differences are very small, and they are so fast, it’s hard to identify them on the wing!

    Arrgh, this was supposed to go on the hummingbird photo.

    Bob, the comments button on this blog is in a weird spot. 😛
