Now I am settling back in at home in Australia, thought I would post a simple update.

Around our pool area there is a lizard that appears occasionally. My folks have christened the lizard as “Wally”.  According to them, Wally likes to hang around the pool. He has been known to swim through the water, drink from it and generally stands and poses (in an upright position) next to it.

When I first came home I saw him a few times and thought it would be good to get a zoomed in photo. For the next week, whenever I came out onto the back veranda I would look for Wally. But he was nowhere to be seen. I began to wonder if he has gone. Recently I did see him a few times, but by the time I got my camera he was gone.

Yesterday during very heavy rains I was finally able to capture him. He was just sitting next to the pool in the pouring rain.

It was a bit hard to focus through the rain, but this one shot below came out ok. So here’s Wally, the guardian of the pool!
