Kicked back in my favorite lawn chair, sipping on a cool drink while reading an Edward Abbey book, noticed a quick movement from the corner of my eye. Glancing to the large granite rock that sits in my campsite I found this guy or girl laying quietly blending in with its surroundings. The only movement was from it's eyes whose focus went from me to the base of a post oak tree two feet away.
Clinging to the tree with tiny little toes it blended well to the bark and dead leaves where it perched while watching the lizard on the rock that was watching it on the tree. I think maybe it might be "Courting Season"!
I wish I knew the gender of these two so we would know which was which. This will make a good question for the biologist Ranger next time I visit. I suspect the male to be the one on the tree as it was larger and more colorful than the other, as nature usually provides.
Just before all this lizard watching began I had placed a chicken breast on my grill to slow cook for my evening meal. With all the picture taking and lizard chasing I forgot about it grilling until I smelled what I thought was burned chicken. Lucky for the lizard it was just right or I might have been able to answer the age old question 'Does grilled lizard really Taste like Chicken'!
