Lizard and his shadow

Posted by

These lizards are so iniquitous that they aren't worth photographing. But I liked this one clinging to the screen of my daughter's lanai (lanai is Florida-speak for screened in porch). I liked the shadow of the screen making tiny squares on his body, then the full body shadow on the supporting beam.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Ce petit lézard est joliment pris avec son ombre et celle du grillage.
