My fascination with creatures big and small causes me to take tons of photos.
Ok that’s just an excuse!
To be precise, I like to hear the click of the shutter button. 😉
But really, I do like bugs of all sorts as well as lizards. Don’t particular like to touch them, but definitely do like to study them.
If you have ever traveled around Florida, you will notice that as you travel from the Gulf side of the state to the Atlantic side, the lizards take on a different shape and look.
The following photos will give you a clue.
You are probably going to say: “Camellia, those two last ones are not lizards, but green iguanas.”
And I would respond that you are totally correct but, they still belong to the Lacertidae family and they are beneficial to the ecosystem. Albeit the green iguanas are rather invasive fellows.
They are always fun to capture. Here we have a few but they are so shy. Did you forget your featured photo, my dear
They popped up the geatured photo, seems there is a bit of delay today
I noticed the delay. Also I had to try it twice even though I knew I had added it. There is also a delay when commenting.
Not a lizard fan by any means but these are very cool😃
Thank you Abigail.
Ah, come on, touch them! What’s the worst that could happen? Oh, right, salmonella – never mind. But seriously, as a kid, my younger brother and I had a small business of capturing and selling lizards (of all type and kind) and turtles at Piggly Wiggly while our mom was shopping during the summer. Made a small fortune – $1-3 per week! Got a lot of repeat business.
The turtles I can see would be a nice meal…but lizards?
No, silly – as pets for other kids. They didn’t take care of them, so the escaped or died. Guaranteed repeat business!
