Saturday night's sunset.

This is the famous comet Jasper-Ruhroh.

Believe this little guy is called a Brown Anole.

WildFlorida.com says, "Florida has several lizard species that are easy to find and interesting to watch. Geckos are so common in buildings in South Florida that they are called ‘house lizards.’ Anoles and skinks are easy to watch in almost any park or garden."


The planet Jupiter has been obvious in the evening sky.

Camera lens is not able to show any of the planet's 64 moons, some of which apparently can be seen with a decent pair of binoculars.

One moon, Ganymede, is larger than the planet mercury.


Folk next door have a fish-feeding machine at the end of their dock.

Every evening, shortly after 6 p.m., the thing goes off and sprays fish-food pellets off the end of the dock.

The splashes you can see in the water are a combination of the pellets hitting the water and small fish feeding on them.


Deb managed to get this photo of the antennae of a spiny lobster who has made a home in the crevices in the boat basin.

Spiny lobsters, unlike Maine lobsters, don't have the big, meaty claws...just the tail.


Kayaker taking fido for a paddle.

Note that this dog is smart enough to wear a life jacket...clearly wiser than many humans that venture forth on the waters.
