Yesterday afternoon I was able to photograph one of my local backyard critters. I have been seeing it all summer around the pond and the fire pit. It's not very nervous. Being so young and small it probably has little fear of humans. I photographed it on the flagstone (sandstone) from above just because I wanted to really capture the beauty of it's scales. Normally I prefer photographing lizards at ground level because it's a more interesting point of view. In this situation from above it really worked. Oh by the way in case you are wondering the W.F.L stands for "Western Fence Lizard". One of the most common lizards in California. They are also found in parts of Nevada, Oregon and Idaho as well.
God's precious love to all,
