    Random pictures from my yard

    I took these in my backyard in the last week or so. The lizard is a juvenile Blue Tail. They are very elusive. When anything approaches them they head for cover. Right after I took this picture it ran back up under the siding on my shop. The rest are just random shots.

    Your yard looks like it is a nice place to hang out and watch the creatures.

    It used to be a lot better. I had deer, turkeys, quail and rabbits. I even saw a fox one time. Then they developed the property behind mine and now I mostly have stray dogs and cats.

    At one time my backyard looked free and open all the way to Nebraska, but the city of Boulder put some restrictions on new home development within their limits and they started building everywhere around me. They even split up a portion of Boulder county and created the new county of Broomfield and even a new town called Anthem built on a hillside that was open country I could once view from my backyard. I would see these little brown lizards, fox and pheasants around the fields 25 plus years ago, but I haven't seen any of those now in years. They did set aside a lot of open space lands that you can still get out to enjoy nature within this rapid developing world, which makes it nice for people to enjoy. Most the fox I see now have moved into the older residential areas that have been around with the old growth vegetation of a 100 years or so, I believe the fox find those areas safer from coyote that have run them out of the limited open country we now have around here now.

    This one was only about 4 inches long I have seen them as big as 12 inches. They look like a snake at first glance. My yorkie chases one out of the flower bed almost every day. He will pounce and the lizard will run back between his legs and up the brick wall. Charlie almost got him once but all he ended up with was the tail. Now I have a stumpy lizard but his tail is growing back. Maybe I will be lucky enough to gt a picture of him in the coming days.

    Don't worry. The turkeys may stay around. This is the back of one of my neighbor's houses:
