I know, I know – the pun was inescapable.

Here’s a tiny lizard on the yard patio – that’s concrete, BTW, so you get an idea of the grain size.

And here’s the same lizard right near my toe, for comparison.

Lizard to scale

Yep. Tip of my sneaker. Baby lizards are tiny.

Mini Mushroom

So the lizard’s not the only mini-life in the yard. Mini-mushroom!

Mini Crustacea

And mini terrestrial crustacean!

…This has been a scheduled break from the news for the sake of everyone’s mental health. Because seriously, who wouldn’t rather watch pillbugs than the news, lately?

  1. Do you guys have those tiny little frogs that are small enough to sit on a dime and make it look like a lily pad?

    I admit, I shrieked like a fangirl the first time I saw one! SO CUTE!

        The name is almost as good as the “Giant House Spider.” (Tegenaria duellica. It looks like a movie prop. And is FAST.)
