First one is a beautiful butterfly near the backyard (actually called the front yard here ??) patio resting on some frilled coreopsis:
Early on Sunday morning, while we were loading up the Trol for a shopping excursion to Kitwe Tom nearly stepped on this little guy. It was quite patiently watching small ants. Since we have plenty to share, it was welcome to any and all it would eat.
The final new creature greeted us when we returned from Kitwe. He (she?) was waiting near the front door on the entryway. Fortunately it simply skittered in and stayed put outside. Beautiful lizard, though I am grateful we found it outside, and not inside. We are fine with the inside lizards as they only range from 1" to no more than 4" long.
Since he was so pretty, here is one more shot:
