Day 41 with WA-04Mar2015 and I'm watching a Lizard playing Guitar

Last Update: April 16, 2015

I know this has nothing to do with WA lessons, but I couldn't resist sharing this report with everyone here. I've put the link below for those interested to see the actual report:

Lizard strikes human-like pose, playing guitar

Photographer Aditya Permana was observing a forest dragon lizard in Indonesia for more than an hour before the critter turned comical.

Photographer Aditya Permana was observing a forest dragon lizard in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, for more than an hour until the critter struck a human-like pose, kicking back and appearing to play a leaf guitar.

The Mirror described the comical pose as a “crazy critter” strumming on its “accou-stick instrument.”

“I did not directly photograph the lizard at first, until the lizard [felt] calm and comfortable around me,” Permanatold Caters News Agency.

Obviously the lizard felt calm and comfortable, as it laid back on a tree root, propped up an elbow, and looked to be “strumming” the leaf. So he took its photo.

“I noticed it looked like it was playing a guitar—and it didn’t move at all,” said Permana, 33.

The Mirror suggested several songs on the lizard’s set list, such as “Don’t Beleaf a Word” by Thin Lizzy, “You Can Leaf Your Hat On” by Tom Jones, “If You Leaf Me Now” by Chicago, “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club, and “Don’t Leaf Me This Way” by Thelma Houston.

As kicked back as this lizard appears, think less Jimi Hendrix and more John Denver.


I hope every one will appreciate the wonders of God's creations, where this picture above will bring a smile even to a scoliodentosaurophobic person.

God bless everyone that's got a smile right now, and yes, go out and smile at everyone you see. Today is a good day.

Blessings...

Shirley

that's all I the thanks I need, but credit do go to the photographer who was blessed to get that particular shot. You can't pose wild critters.
I just had to share the whole article.
Bless you...

Yes, I do too, and you're so welcome. I'm a John Denver generation tho' so will be thinking different tunes (I'm no musician,so how I'm going to do that is a puzzle).
