Daz - was that fellow a pet or something in the wild? Great picture!

Driver3 - that picture is just awesome!

Victor - is the cat yours or a neighbors?

Thanks mtngal and yes, it was some guys pet. I had never seen this guy before but he was just sitting on a bank by the lake. I walked over by him to see if there was anything on the lake that I would like to take a photo of. I looked down to check my footing and there was this lizard at my feet. The guy said it was his pet and that when it was warm he liked to take him out. The lizard is about 1 ½ feet long. We don't have any lizard near that big in the wild here. The lizard was friendly (for a lizard) so I could take some close up photos of him. You never can tell what is around you until you look and then you can take a photo of it.

Thanks Harriet! Actually, this is the first time I've let anyone see this pic.

I am entering it in the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program Calendar Contest. I entered for the first time last year and took third out of 325 photographers! The calendar is a free publication but they pay a nominal prize for the first 3 places so it's mostly for bragging rights...LOL!

Ah, green grass. Green trees. Flowers. Looks cool and inviting. Want to trade the desert where I'm staying at the moment? I'd love to feel the cool grass under my feet and feel a refreshing breeze ruffle my hair, instead of having it feel like it's baked to my skull...

Well, not quite at this moment, but how about in January or February?

I see I'm going to have to come up with something different if I'm going to compete this month. Some fantastic images here yet again.

Roy - what exactly is that bird? Looks like a cross between a turkey, a pigeon and I don't know what. And, certainly doesn't look like something I'd expect to see if Dallas. But, I've only ever flown through there. So, what do I know :-)

Well, since it has laid eggs, it must be a fe-mali. :lol:

Actually it is a mixture of domestic and wild-type Muscovy Ducks (or since ducks hybridize so freely, a Mostly Muscovy}. :G
