When you step out of your ute in a Macdonalds carpark (yes, I confess: a rare last resort!) you don’t expect to be eye-to-eye with a prehistoric creature like this.
It was most uncomfortably perched on top of a harshly pruned hedge, as spiky as itself.
I think it’s a water dragon but there was none of that substance about. It, like the dragons, is usually found at ground level.
Maybe it was waiting to be fed leftovers from Maccas?
By the way, at least I learnt that Maccas still doesn’t cater for vegetarians.
Coffee with fries, please.
Meanwhile at home, I have two far more smooth and docile creatures in residence.
The Gramma couple are snuggling up in a corner while I consider how best to use these gifts from a neighbour. I’ve done the Gramma Pie they requested. Very nice too, but it was more an exercise in disguising the Gramma than making the most of its flavour (?).
Anything could have provided the bulk.
Anyway, I’m not sure I can bear to break up this loving pair. Well, he seems a bit uppity, but she clearly adores him.
