I went around our little seasonal pond this morning and surprised this darling juvenile Blue-Belly lizard, who ran over to a rock and relaxed in the warm sun while I took pictures. He didn't seem to mind me getting quite close, and only ran off when I got within 6" of him! CUTIE PIE!!! Look at that FACE!! Aren't you in LOVE?!! AWWWWWWWW!!!!! All that cuteness in a 2" package!

My reference to dragons is because today I've been thinking about a game I used to be addicted to, called World of Warcraft. Steve and I spent 5 years playing this online game, and one of the coolest things you could do was own and ride dragons! In fact, we got good enough at our chosen characters that, with the teamwork of 8 others, we all managed to complete an extremely difficult series of challenges, and as a reward, we all got special skeletal dragons. What an achievement! Even though I won't play games like that anymore, I still look back on my best memories with great happiness! (Here's a link to special dragon that took us MONTHS to get!

What a sweet face! You captured his beauty and all amazing detail so perfectly.
I'm sure he'll grow up to be a big, powerful 'dragon' some day...
