I visited the Huntington last weekend. While resting on one of the many benches in the gardens I had a moment with a baby lizard.
As you may have gathered from my angry rattlesnake story (not to mention my sojourn into the uncharted territory of county fairs) I’m quite the animal lover. So any chance to get this close to a wild animal, even just a lowly lizard, was a treat for me.
I was surprised how long it sat still for me. After taking the above photo I lightly stroked its back with a fingertip. It put up with my attention for a few seconds, then finally scampered away.
