Photo blog day twenty-three, September 5, 2010

Today we visited Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC.  This place is outstanding.  We roamed around a little but mostly spent time with the live animals and butterflies.  When I first arrived there a group of women were standing at the edge of a raised garden with long lenses and big cameras clicking away.  Feeling like I could join the pack I wandered over to see what they were doing.  One woman just looked at me and walked away.  Another finally said there was a lizard on the leaves.  I definitely felt some hostility and couldn’t figure out why.  Aren’t we all pretty much doing the same thing each with our own spin?  It was strange.  Well they all moved on after about a minute and I had this little guy all to myself.  I spend about 10 minutes taking images and struggling with the weight of my lens and autofocus.  I got this cute image before he finally disappeared into the brush and I learned my lens… bring a monopod or tripod for macro photography!!  I googled images of this lizard and according to what I found this lizard is called a Green Anole.  I think this was a baby because it was only about 2″-3″ from nose to tail.
