I love these guys...and gals...but I can never get a good photo while I'm watering. I have a whole commune of them but they are so camera shy. The babies are so cute. This is a Dad I think. Blinking

I challenge you to get a way better shot of one and whoever gets the best photo receives a painted lizard for their garden!

Our friends back east love to see our lizards. I love to see their hostas. Hilarious!

How could you tell he was Dad and not Mom boo? Hilarious! Hilarious!

I love them too, cute little things. I like the very pale ones, almost abino looking, that hang out on my living room window, by the porch lite at night...looking for bugs to eat!

I'm especially fond of those guys that do "push-ups" along the block fence around my yard--too funny!

It is how the cool their bodies. I love to watch them! Will have to see if I can get a good pic. It's tough since they're so fast.

Love your Italian lizard Jill!

You mean they're not trying to impress the babes with their well-developed pectorals?

Boo, I think you should offer extra to anyone who can get a movie of lizard pushups! Smiling

I have a stack of these lizards...to paint for you all....

This is actually what happened today but I was shy to admit it:
I look out my bedroom window and see two lizards....in a row on top of the block wall. One is sunning herself. the other, the male I'm sure, is doing the push up dance. I thought it was some courting ritual. Rolling on the floor laughing

I was so afraid I would find him gone to lizardheaven, I knew as soon as it got warm I put him out.
Didn't fight at all. I would spray the mirror in the Bathroom and it would go get a drink. I loved it!!!
