The Dragon on the Wonga Wonga on the Fence

The Dragon on the Wonga Wonga on the Fence
This is the Wonga Wonga vine growing along our side fence. Recently, to my surprise, there was a moderately large Gippsland Water Dragon sitting motionless among it, trying hard not to be noticed. Happy Fence Friday!.

PS. These are reasonably timid (though they do become accustomed to people) and live mainly on insects.

I seem to recall completely LOSING IT the last time you posted a picture of a....WONGA WONGA plant!!! THE NAME!! THE NAME!!! ROFLMAO, it's just SO FUNNY to me!!! *bounces around the room, delightedly bleating WONGA-WONGA!!* *cackle* I'm sorry but I just can't help myself when I find something silly, it's in my nature! :D

Now, on to your picture. WONGA WONGA! :D
The lizard is super cool!!! How lucky that you noticed it "I am not here. You do not see me. Move along." *cackle* Lizards totally crack me up because they always try this one and they might as well be wearing a neon jumpsuit! :D Just the other day a Fence Lizard gave itself away and ran about five feet to the center of a grassy spot and stood there, as obvious as could be. "Nope. I'm not here. I'm a creative piece of grass, yeah, that's it!" :D :D Anyway, thanks for sharing, I'd love to see one of these in the wild some day!

I also wanted to say thank you for your warm message about Roscoe's passing. It was very kind of you. :) (I'm making rounds to say thanks to everyone who left thoughtful notes as a personal thank you! :)
