Weekend Reflections



I was getting ready to wash some dishes after dinner one night last week and I found this baby anole sitting behind my sink. It took me awhile to catch it, but I finally did and set it free outside my back door. If you look closely in the chrome of the faucet handle, you can see my reflection as I took his picture. To see more awesome reflections from around the world, visit James at Weekend Reflections.

My goodness! For some reason, it always freaks me out when a gecko finds its way inside. But, I don't have any issues with them outside. I've never heard of an anole. Way to be ready with your camera to capture him --- before you captured him!

Here is a tip for catching geckos or lizards, at least from Julie's and my experience.

1. Wait until the creature is on a flat surface, such as the floor or wall.

2. Place a Tupperware (or similar) container over the creature, being careful not to smash its tail.

3. Slide a piece of paper under the container lip and under the creature, slowly, so the creature steps onto the paper.

4. Slide a cardboard under the paper and press against the container lip.

5. Carry the container, with paper and cardboard lid, outside and allow the creature to be reunited with the great outdoors.

6. Repeat as necessary.

An unplanned shot of your kitchen sink and it is gleaming and spotless. No shots of mine, thank you very much.

Super job, Lois. You must have been quick with the camera! And quick with your hands; these little critters can scurry very fast!

You know what my wife used to keep in her kitchen...a golden frog. She used to call him her lucky frog :D He used to hide under the sink and comes out when we are not around. I had to take him out of the kitchen as we have two viscous dogs who likes to attack little things like frogs and lizards. I think the luck frog is much happier in our yrad.

Thanks for stopping by our Chennai and Nilambur blogs.
