Wait a minute!

I know, this doesn't really belong in the winery blog, but the other night when I was walking Emma and Cassy for their end of day walk at our home in Tucson, I heard this rustling in the nearby gravel. As I directed the flashlight in that direction I saw this beauty. It was about 18-20 inches long and just watched me watch it. I hurried the end of the walk and got the camera. Fortunately it was still where I left it and being a rather shy creature, did not stick around for a pose. Not that I wanted to get to close to it either. A real prehistoric animal. A wonder of the Sonoran desert. The only poisonous lizard in North America. Gila Monster.
