Today’s photo is from Marc Opperman in Austin, Texas. He says, “I have a yard of mixed Central Texas native wildflowers, shrubs, and grasses, as well as an ever-increasing set of vegetable beds. And although my yard is small and suburban, it is definitely testament to planting natives to foster diverse wildlife. I regularly skulk about the yard looking for fun shots with which to use my 60mm micro lens. This little green anole is just one of a thousand or more to be found in my garden. I found him resting on the petals of an echinacea as if they were a bed. He seemed pretty amenable to a giant lens inching up.” Thanks, Marc, for sharing!
