Lovely, lovely lizard--

3/08: Lizard! 3/08: Church Lizard

A few weeks ago we had the "Blessing of the Beasts" at church, and some of the kids yoinked me away from the pasta salad to take some snapshots of a lizard. It ran around for a while and FINALLY posed for me on an oak tree. It's got irridescent blue and green scales along its lizardy belly. Very pretty creature, but it could do with being more patient with photographers!

He was a quick and paranoid little creature...

Nice photos!
You can even see the blue belly stripe in the head-down one.
Here's the Wikipedia article on that species.
