Lizard, lizard, show your money bag!

When I was a kid, I would say that until Mr. Lizard bounced his neck up and down and showed me his wonderful red money bag!

This Mr. L was no exception!

I looked out my window and saw him on the side of the greenhouse -- got my trusty camera -- and asked him to please pose for me.

I had to say "pretty please" but he accommodated me! Note his bright green color -- he might be a bit apprehensive as to my intentions, but he's still trusting of me.

OK, what's that human going to do? Catch me by the tail? And what on earth is that weird black thing she's holding? Think I'll just hang out a minute and see what's up....
Not so trusting anymore...

Not so trusting at all. Now he's completely brown and in "I'm going to bite you if you get any closer" mode. But, wait! His money bag is appearing! Will he show it?


Zip! Zap! Off Mr. Lizard goes -- the show is over!
Can she see my hiding place?

I'm outta here!

I can't believe how much he changed color in just a few shots! His "money bag" sure is pretty :)

This is great! I've taken a few lizard pics, too. They are abundant in FL! I love watching them change color, too! Great shots!

lol! This post made me laugh. Awesome photos!! It's neat how he changes colors the more annoyed he gets. ><

I love this! He's so cute! I don't think we have those around here. Lots of frogs but no lizards.

Cool pics! My sister and I used to try to catch lizards, we never did.

Do they really bite?
