Pretty On Pink

A recently hatched Carolina Anole spent some time watching the world from a Mandevilla plant on my patio a few days ago.

You might wonder how he got in there, I sure did. He didn’t weigh much but these petals are quite delicate.

I suspect he climbed out the stem then jumped/fell into the center. A wider view shows how tiny the Anole was. The blossom was about four inches (10 cm) across.
