Little Lizards

A small lizard appeared from the shadows of a milkweed plant 
and creeped along one of the long leaves as if he were checking things out-
"Things look pretty quiet out here right now".  After a few moments, he was gone.

Seconds later, another lizard was seen easing along the edges of a leaf.
Only this one was smaller- a wee baby lizard.  So tiny and defenseless, 
so vulnerable to predators that are everywhere around him.

So new to the lessons of survival in this great big world around him.  
I hope he's a quick learner.
