Have you been kissed by a lizard lately?


Maybe he thought a kiss would turn that leaf into a cute little female lizard?

Louis la Vache said...

No, thank you anyway....

It's difficult for me to associate the words cute & lizards together. :-( But having said that, I do need to mention the fact that the shot is really amazing! Loved the timing... Sad for the lizard nothing happened :-D

Terrific catch.

absolutely superb capture!

Don and Krise said...

I'm thinking he's looking at it like it's a speed bump.

Excellent shot. I love it. A Lizard in perfection---still no kiss. MB

Oh bravo ! Belle photo !

overt my post, you write :
It looks like some runners ran by and stuck their water bottles there...hopefully, they'll come back and pick them up!

Explication : cette photo a été prise dans un cimetière. Les bouteilles servent aux familles qui prennent de l'eau au robinet pour arroser les fleurs sur la tombe de leurs morts.

Schnurf...I haven't been kissed by anybody lately. Send the lizard.

You picture is simply great and the caption original and funny, but I can't like the beast...

Best not to kiss lizards or frogs - some of them are toxic. Wonderful photo, though - astonishing detail.

That jogger below - it's such a typically American suburban setting - and the church, too.

Luckily, the answer is no, ;-) But it IS cute to look at.

@ Bibi - I read your comment, burst out in laughter, and I'm still laughing! Howling, really. Sooooo funny!

I think that lizard needs some "Lizard lotion!" His skin seems so dry and wrinkly!

Saretta said...

Awesome lines and movement in this shot, great job!

Lois said...

Fabulous shot Jacob! I haven't been kissed by one lately, but I did have to shoo one out of my kitchen last night. Not sure how he got in, but he was driving my cat crazy!

Maybe he thought of turning it to a beautiful princess...now that'd be the lizard and the princess story. :)

Jarart said...

Great close up shot! I think lizards are cute....in a way.

nopham said...

Wonderful picture! I haven't been kissed by a lizzard...willing to try.. . better than an alligator.

I found another lizard in my house over the weekend. He was hiding in my kitchen window blinds and after I caught him and put him outside, I thought about taking his picture for my blog! Too late. Maybe I'll get another one in the house and remember to get his portrait next time.

What a beautiful composition. There's more than a bit of poetry in this.

"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." — Henri Cartier-Bresson
