中庭のトカゲ – Lizard in Courtyard


ガレージと母屋との間の中庭は、最近好きな場所の一つです。 – The courtyard from main house to garage is one of my favorite spaces these days.

石探索で仕入れてきた石の調査をしたり、庭の手入れの準備をしたり、はたまたあらゆる物の一時的な物置場でもあります。 – It’s a miscellaneous task place like checking out the rocks I picked up from somewhere, prepping for gardening, or putting things temporarily.

そこへ、時々ピョコりと現れるメスのサバクハリトカゲ。どうやら、このコーナーの下に住んでいるようです。- And there, a female Desert Spiny Lizard pops up from under the table time to time. My guess is that it lives down there at the corner.

最初に見た時は悲鳴をあげましたが、もう慣れてしまったので「また来たのね。」と声をかけられる余裕ができました。爬虫類はまだ苦手です。でも、触らなければ大丈夫。ここに住み始めてから一年間、頑張った成果です。- I screamed and ran away when I saw it for the first time, but I’ve gotten used to it and built up enough tolerance now, so I could talk to it, “Oh, It’s you again.” I am still not fond of reptiles, but I am ok now as long as they don’t touch me.
