Photon accumulation

Thursday, 18 June 2015

I try to minimize jetlag by collecting all the photons available. So of course, I did a trail patrol at Windy Hill today, spent an hour or so removing thistle, and came upon this beautiful alligator lizard.

Alligator lizards are especially good photographic subjects because they freeze instead of running. I was only a couple of cm away from it when I shot that last photo. Just to make sure it was healthy, I then nudged it with my toe, and it took off into the bush.

Good to be home.

    Yes, alligator lizards are especially stubborn. We have to look sharp for them while we are mowing. Did you notice the ticks embedded in the fold in front of the foreleg? Just busy cleaning Lyme’s disease out of that tick blood.
