FLY WITH ME

Welcome to the words flying from my keyboard, I hope you can hang around!

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts” said Marcus Aurelius, a Roman emperor and philosopher.

So, please swing by About or the Archive List category for a full birds-eye view of my thoughts as they take wing in a flurry of words and flutter down onto the page.

Alternatively, you can strut through my New Posts with the most recent perched at the top of the list.  For specific posts, I have a Search box.

Such flights of fancy; a more down-to-earth viewpoint is landing now … read on …

FRILLED NECK LIZARD—Scientific name Chlamydosaurus kingii—Frilled Lizards inhabit dry woodland, usually with open shrubbery or grass understorey. Most of their time is spent off the ground in trees, often at a substantial height. They are well adapted to life in the hot tropics of north-western and northern Australia and the species also occurs in Papua New Guinea. The term ‘frilly lizard’ is often mistakenly applied to the common bearded dragon in the southern states of Australia. The Frilled Lizard eats mainly insects, spiders and other invertebrates. Their colour can be brown or grey with the frill being lighter and often tinged with orange or reddish-brown, and they can grow to around 45-90cm in length, about two-thirds of which is tail. It has a vivid yellow mouth and a large extendable frill gathered about the neck and under throat. The combination of the gaping mouth and the wide, brightly coloured frill provide an intimidating sight to any potential predator. It frequently runs at speed on two legs to escape danger, quickly climbing the nearest tree to safety.
