Anatole has a green rival for our attention

I think that Iggy must have seen my Monday post with Anatole showing off his beautiful orange dewlap. There were many complimentary comments, and people obviously found the dewlap display most impressive. Yesterday, not to be outdone, Iggy our resident lime-green rock star was waiting for me on the same rockery. “C’mon out with that camera and I’ll show you my party trick too.”


“Can’t have that small fry Anatole getting all the limelight. Now just make sure you get a really good shot. One to get ready, two to be steady, three to prepare and Ta-Da! ”


“How do you like that? Pretty impressive hey? It might not be clockwork-orange, but it sure tones much better than Anatole’s does; far more classy in my humble opinion.  Now I’m sure they’d also love a view of my spiny ridge. Don’t I just look like a mini dinosaur?”


“I’ve been told that my left profile is my best side. What do you think? Am I handsome or what?”


He really pulled out all the stops to impress you all, but all of a sudden our young Iggy got tired of the attention and scuttled down into the shade. “It’s just so exhausting being a celebrity. Let’s see how my WP ratings go, and maybe I’ll pose again for you and your friends some other time.”

A very happy Thursday to you all.
