Heavy clouds but no rain…the Build Up is here, and we’re all stewing in our own sweat like plump pomfrets.
Living on a houseboat, it’s sometimes really tempting to go for a quick swim…cool off in the water…but sightings like this one curb that longing. Between 10-12 feet long, or thereabouts; big enough to do some serious damage already. Curious about the surroundings, this lizard clearly has not learned to be wary, yet, so it will be in a trap soon enough. My personal first sighting of the season (though by no means the first in the creek! It’s the ones you can’t see that are the real worry…)
The leaves in the foreground are my own pot plants…so yes, it seemed to be stalking me, actually.
