Lizard Surprise!


Because there are practically no rainy days in Southern California in the summer, occasionally I spray the foliage on some of the plants. They can get very dusty.

Today as I was completely absorbed in the task, a surprise visitor jumped out of the bushes and landed on the rock ledge. I think I had surprised him with an unexpected cold shower. He did a nice job blending in with the surrounding stonework, don't you think?

He's much bigger than the typical skittering lizard in my yard. I'm not sure what type of lizard he is. :)
