Scaly Visitor

Lizard

This little guy has been hanging out in our front flower beds. There may be several, but I haven’t been able to get a good look before now, so I don’t know if what I’ve seen scurrying across the sidewalk is the same one or different ones.

Now that I’ve seen this one up close, I’ll be able to tell if there is more than one because this one looks to have had a rough life as it has a nasty scar on its side.

I’ve been sitting on the front porch in the afternoons when it isn’t raining just to get some fresh air and sit in the sun for a few minutes. I’m going to be on lizard watch now to see if I can figure out how many we have hanging out.

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

    1. They seem to be pretty common around here. They aren’t very big, maybe between 5 and 8 inches long or so including tail. Some can get a really beautiful blue tail, but this one was only lightly tinted.

    1. He has the hint of blue on his tail. I’m not sure if this is something that changes over time, but we normally see the blue tailed ones around here and his isn’t that vivid.
