M and I like to take evening walks, especially now that the weather is cooler. During these walks, I’ve learned a lot from M about animal tracks. We’ve also seen animal droppings (I can now identify several different kinds) and parts of a snake. The snake must not have survived VDOT’s grass cutting and I’ll have to admit that I wasn’t too sad about that. We’ve seen deer and squirrels and there are cows in the field that adjoins the lane. However, I didn’t expect to see what looks like a lizard on this rural road.
We saw the fellow below on our evening walk. I’m not sure what exactly he is, but he was a pretty unusual sight. The little fellow froze as we stood over him, trying to check him out. However, by the time that we returned, he had disappeared. I wonder if we’ll see him again!
