Lizard!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I found this 7” male Eastern Fence Lizard on the concrete driveway this morning when I went out to fetch the newspaper and bring in the trash bin.
I nudged him with the toe of my boot to see if he’d scamper away, but it quickly became apparent that he was dead. So I left him there in the hope that birds or bugs will return him to the Great Circle of Life.

Wednesday morning update: Mr. Lizard was still on the concrete last night, but was gone Wednesday morning.

These guys like to hang out along forest edges, rock piles and rotting logs or stumps from the Mid-Atlantic states to Texas, according to Wikipedia.
Summer begins at 12:16 p.m. CDT today, but it’s felt like summer – with highs in the 90s – for the past three or four weeks. The temperatures have been averaging 7-10 degrees above normal since mid-May and it’s only going to get hotter.
I rode down to the UPS Store and the Parker Road Walmart yesterday afternoon at a time when the temperature was 93 and the heat index was 100. My new First Gear Mesh-Tex riding pants and Fieldsheer mesh jacket made it bearable, but not exactly comfortable.
