The Chameleon

The garden is doing well in spite of the heat... and the tomatoes and cucumbers are beginning to finally take off. But if one takes a closer look at the cucumber leaf, there is a little surprise - literally. I would have missed him if I was not paying closer attention, but his spindly legs caught my eye. I hope he doesn't damage the crop! But he was cute nonetheless. We used to see little lizards in Florida that scattered quickly when approached. They also acted like chameleons as they matched the leaf color, but have since morphed in to big, brown, ugly, not shy at all creatures that would win any staring contest. Hope these guys stay the same.
