Oh dear, I just found a chameleon in an olive tree in my garden! A bit cold now, isn´t it!

A couple of years ago I found one in November - dead! Probably a young female exhausted after laying eggs. This one is quite alive.

A sign of spring? Perhaps he read the forecasts yesterday, which were much more favourable than this morning!  ;)

Maybe not.... It seems to be an early spring here in Grazalema..... My sunflower seeds have all germinated, Geckos are out, swallows are back, short toed eagles are screeching... I'm feeling frisky - It's nice and warm.... :)

Oh, it was too dark for photos! So I´m cheating, could have been this one.

Unfortunately no chameleons where I am but I did see a skink of some sort today. Also a red-rumped swallow yesterday despite the dearth of (Barn) swallows.

Still hoping for the friskiness to arrive...
