Nature’s nasties waking up in the Antipodes

Spring has arrived in Australia. My garden is beginning to awaken from the long winter months. And with it some eyes are opening ready to explore.

Sleepy Lizards

The top image is a bunch of juvenile lizards snuggled together for warmth, now the sun is higher they are becoming active. All are black except one, albino lizard perhaps?

The bottom image is an ant wandering around. He chewed on my toe then stepped back and posed for me. Looks a fairly lethal critter. Must remember shoes and gloves when gardening! Or suffer.

Unfortunately never had the macro lens on otherwise these would be handsome shots.

Canon 60D 55-250mm lens full extended F4@1/60 ISO 200.
