Saturday morning Sheba and/or Nina picture

I intended to do a Nina picture this week, but when I got the camera ready and pointed it at the terrarium, I couldn't find her. Tried blowing puffs of air in to startle her, so I could see where she was, but that just induced her to jump under the Pellionia thicket before I saw where she was.

I then crept back up on her later, but she saw the camera move or something and, again: under the Pellionia. And the next day, same thing.

I'm pretty sure this is me being clumsy, not Nina being jumpier than normal, but either way, it doesn't matter: I couldn't get new Nina pictures. So here's one from December 2010:

Old photo or not, it's a terrific shot of her!

Nice pic. Those crickets do like to live dangerously!

Crickets look like they could eat a Nina...

I've never owned a lizard. So, I was curious to know, does your lizard usually avoid you? Or is she excited to be fed? I've noticed in pet shops they hide a lot.

She avoids me. Every so often we dump in a dozen crickets, or pour in some water, and occasionally I'll bother her for a picture or to clean/replant the tank, but for the most part, I don't even try to interact with her.

Oh. That's a bit disappointing, but what I suspected. Lizards just want to be left alone, I guess.
