Even More Wildlife

It’s funny how you have a run on things.

At the moment it is wildlife encounters.  The other day we arrived over at Mum’s and as soon as Mick hopped out of the car he said “Quick, get your camera out”.  There was a blue tongued lizard sitting beside the driveway.  Unfortunately, before I could take a photo it scurried under a grate.  There has been a blue tongued lizard living in their yard for years, but you don’t see it very often.

Then, last weekend Mick was on our verandah when he called “Quick, get your camera out”.  In the garden below was a blue tongued lizard.  He/she sat still long enough for us to take his/her photo.

I love the zoom on my little point and shoot camera. The camera was about 3 metres above the lizard for all of these photos.

I couldn’t believe the clarity of this next shot.  Check out the wonderful detail of the legs and feet and the beautiful markings on the head.

We then left “Bluey” in peace and before long he was gone.
