Photo-Finish Friday -- Greeting the Evening

This shy little lizard basks in the dying rays of the setting sun and greets the coming evening.

Just how I want to spend an evening -- soaking in a sunset.

Thanks.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Messymimi.

Lovely photo Leah. I'd like to be soaking up some sun too.

Now, catching up...love what you did with Visa. Your lines are great, still excited to read it. As much as I can't stand the cold, I am with you on the changing seasons. Love the photo on the way up to the hideaway. I'm sorry you weren't able to go all the way, but would much rather have you go half way and come back :)

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Reb.
Glad you like the pics. And the VISA thing was fun.

Slommler, thanks so much.

Oh doesn't he just looked stuffed with personality and downright regal? As if the long departed soul of a Roman Emperor now resides in his little body. It's just a very dignified posture that little lizard has going.

Thank you for sharing the picture, I love pictures that basically tell stories all by themselves :-) Congratulations on the post of the week mention over at Hilary's blog!

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Land of Shimp. You're right about the little fellow. I didn't see it that way until you pointed it out.

Great shot. I always think it a bit of a miracle when someone is there with a camera to preserve these moments. Congratulations on the potw.

Daryl said...
