Birds Do It. Bees Do It. Lizards Do It.

So, I am in the backyard, fussing a little with my flowers, admiring mostly. I'm hearing a rustling sound in the lavender bushes. I move closer and peer into the bushes where I see them.

Lizards. Doing what lizards do. In the springtime.

Note: I had never actually seen lizards doing it, although based on the hundreds of lizards living in my backyard, they must be doing it. A lot.

It seems like a most excellent idea to take a photo of the lizards in their natural habitat, so I whip out the cell phone and lean closer. The lizards, of course, panic, and the photo op passes as they scurry away, albeit quite awkwardly, based upon their current situation, yes.

So I do not get a photo of the lizards in the act.

Luckily, however, I am able to catch the male lizard immediately afterward.

Heck, yes!

Is that his tail, or is he just happy to see me?
