  1. I like the way you have turned it into a drawing

      There were some flaws/weaknesses, especially in the last two compositions, so I preserved the colour and turned the weaknesses into impressionistic flourishes. 😀
      Now for the lengthy back story, these shots are an indirect consequence of climate change. Last Sunday a line of a severe thunder storm ran across our area and it included a heavy gusts of wind. The most intense part was uncommon for our region, fortunately that intense component only lasted a couple of minutes and we only lost a couple of yard ornaments,…. we also lost electricity.

      Trees and branches came down & took the hydro lines with them. We were without power from about 4:30 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. . Then further power outage starting at ten Monday morning. It was supposed to return around four in the afternoon. Our section of town was off until three in the afternoon the next day.

      Now the lizard needs heat, so on Tuesday Liz had me get out the glass container so we could put the lizard outside to warm up. The glass sides had a lot of smudges and marks and some of the shots really brought those into focus, while movement of the lizard blurred parts of the body.

      So it is all climate change , Trump is an idiot, and that is why this post has the artsy faux coloured drawings in the sequence. 😀

  2. I like 2 and 3 the best. I would be tempted to try 3 without the black line.

      Many thanks. The black lines are the corner support frame for the glass container. 🙂 See my back story in my response to Derrick. 😀

      Many thanks. Yes, I visited her blog the other day. I have a folder of lost/gone but not forgotten blogs/bloggers. 🙂

      BTW I have another word twisty on Implied Spaces – “Fang nally stopped”. 😀

      That was more of our first Chinese Water Dragon. It took a leap, and ran-jumped the length of the dining room table – they can run on two legs , the lizards not the table. We had guests at the time, but we had already started on coffee & dessert so minor disruption. 😀
