Hey, I’m Not Your Everyday Garden Lizard!


I photographed this fella while in the Western Ghats/Nilgiris Mountains, India. Here’s a small story relating to the session.

The lizard had darted into a clearing and sat basking there. I, sitting with my husband on higher ground, noticed the movement and began photographing it. Suddenly, a huge truck started and rolled along its path.

I was horrified, but my husband reassured me that it wasn’t a dud and would dart away. Thank god, he turned out right. The second photo is after the lizard had coolly moved off!

What do you think of this creature? I think it is cute and unique!
