Tiny Little Lizard Eggs
Originally uploaded by danielgreene.
My partner Andy called to me from the back yard yesterday evening and said there was something he wanted me to see. He had moved a cut-off tree stump that we have in the back yard for decoration, and moving it had revealed a little mama lizard and her two tiny eggs underneath. Andy saw the mama lizard scurry off, and when he first showed me these tiny eggs, I thought they were Tic Tacs until he told me what had just happened. I had to run and get my tripod and macro lens and take a photo of this quick before the twilight faded away. Right after I took this photo (long 5-second exposure), we replaced the stump where it had been before, and we hope the lizard will come back to incubate her eggs.
