A photogenic lizard, warming himself in the sun.
Here is a baby lizard my sister-in-law and I saved from her swimming pool in France. We were watching it frantically look for its mother before it fell into the pool. We scooped it out and waited for Mama Lizard to come find it. After a good five minutes, she showed up! It was such a sweet reunion!

This was taken here in Pixiepods Garden, Tenerife. I love how they blend into their surroundings. I find that now some of them take on their own personalities. I have a different species that lives in my hut and a much smaller one, again a different kind again, that likes to eat bits of my gluten free chocolate chip cookies.
On Mother's Day, this "Skink" lizard was discovered on our living room wall. Of course, it is a "good" lizard as it eats bugs! My family chased it around the living room until they caught it in a box and released it outdoors! It was funny seeing my family jumping around the furniture and using the broom to try to capture this lizard! What a memory for Mother's Day!

Here is my friend Henry the gecko! He is 1 of many around our yard. He always hangs around our covered porch. He is so smart, he hangs around my pots and hanging baskets for comfort and sometimes food. In the picture he loves our house thermometer. I love the gecko because they are meat lovers! What that means is, they love to eat all the insects that try to take over our garden! They love the hot weather here in South Carolina. They hibernate in the winter months and that's OK he gives me a warm welcome in the spring!

Saw this little dude outside of my shop. I ran inside, got the camera and started snapping away. The photos came out awesome, in my opinion. Hope you enjoy.
He was a polite little fellow to pose so nicely. We used to have some nice lizards in the yard when we lived in TX and KY; not so many in PA. We love to see them when we hike! (09/15/2010)
I snapped this picture one day of a lizard sunning him/herself on the garden fence. I love animals and nature, and am always looking for an opportunity to photograph beautiful things. We love lizards in our garden, they eat lots of bad bugs. :-)
A couple of years ago I was sitting on my porch and noticed a couple of lizards running up and down the porch columns. I ran and got my camera and just took this one picture before they scrambled away. I just had gotten the camera and couldn't believe how great the picture came out
My husband and I were hiking Bandy Creek Trail at Big South Fork National Park in Oneida, TN when I came across this little fellow. He was on the move until as we were walking by and he caught my eye. He apparently liked having his photo taken because I was able to sit down right near him and photograph him without him scurrying away.
