You know it’s hot when a lizard tries to take a nap on a block of ice! :)
I had a large block of ice to dispose of the other day, and since it has been so very hot and dry here lately, I put it near a clump of coneflowers in one of my flower beds — to let it melt and seep into the soil. A few minutes later, I had to go in and get my camera after I noticed this lizard literally clinging to the cold surface. He sat there for a long time and even tried to climb up on the ice. He lounged there for a half hour! lol He moved off the ice several times, taking a break from the cold, but he stayed within inches of it and returned again and again until it melted away.
