When we arrived at our condo, we were surprised to see signs about not disturbing the wildlife. The emphasis was on the "wild", and I was reminded of that welcome sign that warned of poisonous bugs and snakes. One sign in the condo herb garden showed a picture of a bobcat, which I found tempting. Unfortunately we haven't met him. Nevertheless, we discovered that we are surrounded by unusual wildlife.
The condo managers have a pet "bearded dragon" named Gonzo, who lives in a glass box in the clubhouse. Every morning she entertains the residents who drop by to feed her worms and lettuce. She's gorgeous in an odd sort of way.
To top off the animal experience, we can look down and spot a family of white-tailed jackrabbits and a flock of Gambel's Quail who share a small clearing just below our balcony. These pictures are borrowed because, while we see them frequently, they all move too fast to catch on camera.
We start home tomorrow. Going to miss these scenes -- so different from Memphis!
