Lizard and…?

lizard 3

Here’s the close-up of the lizard (which I still have to identify). It was a cutie, with a fatter profile than I usually see on lizards and a pair of protruding scales over the eyes that looked like horns. It had quite a lot of attitude, too. Most lizards zip off when a human gets too close, but this one just looked at me. We saw others of the same species, and they all had that attitude.

For our next installment in the mystery series, here is a picture of…something yellow, floating in Pinecrest Lake. I’ll offer a hint: it has to do with sex.

    As an Oregon Resident, I recognize that yellow all too well. My allergy to it, not evident when I first moved here, get a little worse every year.

  2. So, it’s either pollen or roe, then? 😉

    Maybe the attitude of our friend comes from its incredible camouflage; it is convinced of being invisible. 🙂

    If the name of Pinecrest Lake comes from pines, I would say that it is pollen of pines. I have often seen a yellow dust covering everything, and with wind or rain it forms yellow waves over the ground. However, I have never seen it over the water.

    Maybe the lizards don’t have many predators where you found them: they’re fearless. 😀

    As for the yellow substance… pollen seems the most logical in this season, indeed. I’ve been collecting layers of yellow pollen on my dark green car for several weeks in a row, lately. A very nice color effect! 😀
