Lizard leg

This was so funny!
During a tour to Augrabies Falls, I neede to get better pictures of the Augrabies Flat Lizard which is only found there.
I had stopped to photograph them on the rocks and this young male walked up to my feet and was smelling my shoe or something. LOL!! The pictures were taken looking straight down and that is my leg you see on the left hand side of the pictures. I wonder what he thought he could eat there? :)

A curious lizard. Maybe you'd stepped on a bug and it was trying to help you get off the shoe.
