This isn't a very clear picture because I took it through my window. I was looking outside and I saw the little lizard climb up the brick. Then the big lizard crawled up next to him. Yikes! These lizards are getting bigger and bigger.
It's late May and that means the Cicadas are out. I tried to find one so that I could take a picture but the only one I saw was flying from tree to tree singing it's very loud song in search of a mate. He didn't want to pose for my picture. I found a picture on this site:
Tucson Cicada . Cicadas aren't a big deal here because only a few come out every year for a month or so. In some eastern states they hatch every 13-17 years en masse and take over towns. It always makes the news when that happens and inevitably someone makes it on TV with their Cicada stir fry or whatever creative dish they can think up. I don't have enough Cicadas for a meal and even if I did I wouldn't want to. Beans and rice are cheap and they don't look at me when I eat them. But...those lizards might be tasty. :)
