Reminder of Summer

 Something not seen too often, chameleons mating. I  was a little late with the camera however and missed the climax of the action. “She” then escaped up a nearby olive tree with the male in hot pursuit. I assume he had unfinished business. I did have a short video of the tree chase which ended with the femail's tail clamped in his mouth and her suspended in mid air; unfortunately I seemed to have lost it, no doubt during the recent upgrade to Windows 7!  I’m missing the summer already and I’m finding the prospect of the winter clear-up somewhat daunting with so much pruning and cutting back to do. Not to mention the inevitable excellent crop of weeds and mountains of wet dead leaves but then the spring and good cheer will soon be on us and my enthusiasm will be reawakened.
