I saw the big tree lizard out gathering some sun.
At this point I’m just at the edge of the porch, maybe fifteen to twenty feet away with a telephoto lens.
Two small steps forward, slowly, I don’t want to spook him. Another half step…
…wait, what’s that on the left that just moved?
I had failed to #FindThatLizard. There had been an assumption on my part, which was incorrect.
This guy was off on the left, ready to bolt.
The first guy was still holding steady on the right, but my guess is that a quick getaway wouldn’t be long in coming if I twitched.
Y’all are good – enjoy the afternoon sun and watch out for those crows. I’ll back away slowly and let you have the yard.
