We spent part of Saturday tooling around the swamp. I made some new friends while we were there.

First up was a friendly little water snake. We watched as he chased some flies and a little wasp. He finally scored a small frog which he ate in two gulps.

Next up was an anole. These little lizards are found just about everywhere in the south, from the desert to the swamp. I bet you can’t find him. Big hint: he’s green

Finally, I leave you with this guy. He’s the first all-red dragonfly I’ve ever seen. He was very lethargic, so I’m pretty sure I met him at the end of his life. I’m glad I was there to get some really nice pictures before he left this world
