Face to Face with Rory
I'm going to be sharing a series of photos in a photo project called "Faces of Wakodahatchee and Green Cay". It will be a group of face-to-face photos of some our favorite creatures in our favorite wetland parks. So far most of the wildlife has observed my request but that basilisk lizard must see better with one eye so I may never get a real face shot of him, I hung over the fence for about 15 minutes waiting on a face shot yesterday.
I first spotted this character in the generator parking area at Wako. He was cautiously trailing across the lot under the generators, stopping every few steps, sniffing the air, looking both ways to make sure no one was watching before moving to the next yellow box on wheels. Before he could escape the fence several people emerged from the ladies room making a bit more noise than he was comfortable with so he hid behind the tires poking his head out between them.
It took only a moment before he turned around and headed the other way and shot out under the south end of the fence. He must have been trying to escape the building area to skitter into the wetland for a bite of diner. As he was heading back across the wooded area he stopped for a quick eye contact with me, SNAP.
I hope you enjoy the photos I'll offer in this project over the next few days.
