  1. You can get lots of lizards in these places !!!

  2. aloha Magical Mystical Teacher – i like the implied sound from what the hunter lizard has caught with this flick of the tongue. cool.

  3. ‘Slurps’ would be the sound in Finnish! 🙂

  4. I like the image of the lizard’s tongue shattering the silence ~

    Nice one ~

  5. Your noticing that sound and sharing it, enriches your readers.

  6. i now see the lizard in my mind’s eye. the strip of green hue between the sky and land…soft subtle color…love this picture.

  7. Is that a sound that one can actually hear? That is amazing.

  8. Ah, nature impedes on nature.

  9. very nice take on the prompt

  10. That would be an interesting sound.

  11. With the massive summer heat somewhat abated, the once harsh looking desert offers its softer side. It may be quite warm down there actually, but the shadow and pale blue sky offer a more comfortable visit…

  12. I can clearly understand that in a silent world, the tongue of a lizard can be heard.

  13. A magical photo veiled in the magic of silence and stillness! Beautiful!

  14. What a crystal clear description of silence.
