 Beware Of Boss!

Beware of camels road sign:

Beware Of Boss!

Camel standing in the middle of road is a dangerous thing: people got killed hitting them with their cars at night. I remember a horrible accident happened here not long ago, when whole family — parents and children — died in such an accident. Hence the sign.

 Oh Hai!



I've already posted a photo of this little lizard not long ago. I haven't seen him since then and thought he was gone. But yesterday he appeared here again. I think i was searching for him in a wrong place or maybe he was hiding while moulting: there's still some dry skin on his head.
Seems now he's afraid of me less than before and i've even watched him hunting and eating flies. It was amazing, this baby has lot of patience to seat and wait, but when needed he is lightning fast and doesn't leave a single chance to his prey.

Sorry LinkWithin: sending email requests for simple CSS tweaking is not the best option, really.

 King Lizard (19 photos)

This handsome guy is a true king of his district. When i met him, he was fighting with other, smaller male, but i frightened them both, so he escaped and went to hide on a nearby acacia tree:

I was in hurry so i quickly made couple of shots and continued on my way, being sure i'll never see him again. But when i came back one hour later, i found him sitting on the same tree. So i made it a photo session.
