It was funny seeing this Prairie Lizard with its back legs stretched out soaking up the morning sun. It couldn’t care less that I was around pointing a camera at it. It even dozed off a few times and I had to wait for it to open its eyes to get the photo I wanted.

The Lizards are the only wildlife that I can count on to get photos of here lately. I enjoy photographing them, but I am sure most people would get bored with my blog if I posted nothing but Lizard photos.
