Shadow Shot Sunday 132: A Visit from Mr. Lizard

While we were staying in a rented condo in the Texas Hill Country earlier this month, this little lizard showed up on our patio one morning. I just happened to have the camera handy, so I was able to get a snap before he scampered off into the abelia bushes. Also caught a bit of the barbecue grill (which I thought about cropping out, but decided I liked the way it looked so left it in).

Shadow Shot Sunday is a weekly photo meme hosted by Hey Harriet.

  1. Fabulous Shadow Shot - lovely wee creature!

  2. Lovely. The grill part and its shadow gives the image more character. Have a beautiful day.

  3. Nice shot. Glad you didn't crop out the grill. It helps to show the size of the little lizard. Plus it gives your picture two shadows. Thanks for sharing!!

  4. Lovely defined shadow line of the little lizard and the curved shadow makes a wonderful contrast!

  5. Terrific capture and I'm glad you didn't crop out the grill, too! It's perfect! Hope you have a great day! Enjoy!


  6. I too am glad you didn't crop out the grill - it balances the picture perfectly! What an adorable little lizard and his shadow!

  7. I'm glad you left the grill in the photo -- it has a great shadow as well. But I really do like the lizard and his shadow. Well done!


    Chasing shadows here and there,
    Chasing shadows everywhere;
    Chasing shadows in the park;
    Chasing shadows long past dark;
    Chasing shadows through the light;
    Chasing shadows day and night—
    Shadow-chaser, don’t you see?
    Shadows were just meant to be!
