I would like to think that when they were wandering side by side in the garden,on seeing some nice
warm tiles, and being madly in love,they threw caution to the wind, and let nature take it's course!!!:)

So nice of you to pass by and make
me smile,with your quirky sense
of humour.

Thank you for your visit,and you too have a nice day.

Breathtaking said...


They really are more frightened of you, you know.Lets see now, you're
frightened of spiders, and lizards,
I wonder what else you can be scared of!!!:)

Thank you for your visit.

I wouldn't get closer even for this wonderful shot ...
exactly "caught in the act"

Eva Gonçalves said...

All this going on in your garden... you'll have to rate your photos soon, :)))) Here go some XX's !! :))))

Breathtaking said...

Thank you, yes they do have lovely markings.I'm often amazed how many
different species of lizards there
are in the garden, all with different markings.We think we saw
a Newt today in the large tank.X

Breathtaking said...


Many people feel repugnance for
lizards,so I understand.My husband
and I befriended a green lizard that we saw one day in the garden.
It used to watch me when I fed the
fish, poke it's head out of it's hole as if to say,what about me!!

So one day I fed it, and it started
to eat out of my hand.We called it
George!!It was very special.

Breathtaking said...

Cute, very cute!!!XX

Hello Breathtaking!

Cheeky devils those two, and quite "disrespectful" too...

And it goes without saying that the picture is lovely.

Have a nice week end!

Not much different than us humans


Breathtaking said...


Hello again!

Perhaps I should have X rated this post as my daughter suggested!!!

So glad you like it,even though it's not such a sharp image.

Enjoy your week end, and thankyou for stopping by.

it looks like it though.

Yes it does, but since I have seen conjoined lizards at least three or four times,I have no doubt as to what they are up to!!!

Lasse said...

In the right time...:) !

Eu não tenho medo de lagartos,até
gosto de os ver. Está excelente,
como as outras, a foto.
Beijinho e bom fim de semana.

People who have lived in the country for all or most of their
lives,are used to seeing them
around,and are not afraid.

So pleased you like the photo.

Excellent capture of lizards copulate. At times like this, the animals in question, elusive by nature, allow an extreme approach, selhe can almost touch the lens.

Hello Gaspar
I did'nt know that,thank you for the information.When I took this photo,the lizards did'nt seem to mind at all that I was there,but I did'nt get too close for fear of disturbing them.
Thank you so much for your visit.:)

A fine illustration from that well-known manual of many- armed combat The Kama Sutra.x

Breathtaking said...

This position is well practiced by lizards.I think it's position number 3!!x

psychelyn said...

Oh WOW, what a moment! Great capture!

Breathtaking said...


A lucky encounter for sure!

Thank you dear.

Unknown said...

Have a good Sunday.
