In what I hope is becoming a trend, I once again set out this weekend in search of new lands and photogenic subjects. Last time was when a friend was visiting, and this time was with my brother interrupting my binge-a-thon of Orange is the New Black (OMG, I love this show!!) with a phone call asking if I wanted to join him.
I was a bit reluctant to go on that journey because, let’s be honest, it was a Saturday morning and I was perfectly positioned under a warm blanket and tuned into the addictive show playing out on my iPad.
REGARDLESS, I said “sure” and, as is the continuance of another trend, was glad I decided to actually – ohmygoodness – do something with my weekend.
While hiking a small hill (yes, Kansas isn’t really all that flat, thank you very much) in the Big Basin area in Southwest Kansas, my brother spotted this Collared Lizard. He was almost perfectly still (he did turn around at one point to glare at me), even after we came back down from the short hike. This angle was the third attempt at photographing the little guy, showing me that sometimes it’s worth a bit more time to better compose a shot.
