Several little lizards were lying on the vines beside the grass, to bask in the sun. Lizards are cold-blooded, they need the sunlight to heat their bodies. One of the lizards was daydreaming, when a fly flew to its mouth, without noticing it. This scene is like humans, sunbathing on the beach – some sunbathing is beneficial to a healthy life.
