We have loads of lizards around here this year. They are everywhere and love this heat. It never seems to get too hot for them. Hanging out by the plants is usually how they spend their days. I imagine there are plenty of bugs to catch there.

There’s a lot of mating going on. Raven wanted outside the door the other day when he spied two lizards chasing each other around in a courtship ritual. I didn’t get a pic of that because I would have scared them off if I went out on the patio.
Here's one hanging out on the storage shed on the patio
Such is life in the desert. It keeps the cats amused to watch all the creatures passing by, or hanging out under the patio shade. I guess 110 in the shade is better than being out in the sun. Besides what choice do these poor creatures have? I feel sorry for them having to put up with the extreme conditions of desert living.
