I went out shooting yesterday. It's been a while since my health and the weather have conspired to give me that opportunity. And a good shoot it was.
I bagged me a new species of lizard and some new shots of familiar lizards. I like shooting lizards...and I really do. I thought I enjoyed birds, but no...it's those creepy, crawly things which up close and personal have such a prehistoric look to them I like best. You can see a couple of the new shots on my photostream at Flickr.
So, since I am shooting more and more (I hope...it appears the weather in the high desert is going south again real soon), I hope to post more and more shots of the local fauna. I generally put my favorite shots on my Flickr site. But I still have a lot of great shots I just don't want to post at Flickr. And because of that, I was glad when a friend of mine, Misty of Misty's Musing started a Sunday meme called Camera Critters Meme (don't ask me what "meme" means, as I still ain't figured it out). I figure I'll put my "other" good shots linked to that meme here.
So to begin the fun, my I present -- "A Lizard"
I came across this guy yesterday, along the Dry Canyon Trail in Redmond, Oregon which is one of my favorite places to wander. I'm not sure what species of lizard this is. Show me anything else and chances are I'll be able to name it, but lizards? NOT! At least not yet. 8v)
So, if you enjoy critters of any type, check out the Camera Critter Meme here.
And if you know the species of this lizard, let me know 8v)
