Meet Gordon Gecko -
Meet the object of his affection, the fair Darien -
Gordon and his lady love play a game of "Catch me if you can."
Here is Gordon showing off -
Here's Cooper - oblivious to the dance of love going on right under his nose.
In an effort to test the limits of Gordon's affections, Darien plays hard-to-get and moves to another bench -
Oh, Darien? Where ARE you?
It seems the fair Darien is immune to Gordon's charms (or perhaps she is just camera shy).
Gordon searches high -
He contemplates bringing flowers to woo the fair Darien. Alas, he has only a credit card and the flower vendor accepts only cash. Foiled again in the game of romance.
Onward, with only his fierce determination -
and bizarre neck to offer the fair Darien - he searches tirelessly.
Where IS that coy minx hiding?
Rejected and humilated, Gordon turns his attentions to the feathered species. Little does he know, Polly is hardened to his charms, also. She is made of wood. No, really, she IS made of wood.
To be contined . . . or maybe not.
[These are green anole lizards. Their behaviour could mean they are engaged in either combat or mating - just like every other species, it's hard to tell the difference and we didn't stick around to find out 'cause we've seen them in combat and it's SCARY . . . ]
