Photographer Aditya Permana was observing a forest dragon lizard in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, for more than an hour until the critter struck a human-like pose, kicking back and appearing to play a leaf guitar.

The Mirror described the comical pose as a “crazy critter” strumming on its “accou-stick instrument.”

“I did not directly photograph the lizard at first, until the lizard [felt] calm and comfortable around me,” Permana told Caters News Agency.

Obviously the lizard felt calm and comfortable, as it laid back on a tree root, propped up an elbow, and looked to be “strumming” the leaf. So he took its photo.

“I noticed it looked like it was playing a guitar—and it didn’t move at all,” said Permana, 33.

The Mirror suggested several songs on the lizard’s set list, such as “Don’t Beleaf a Word” by Thin Lizzy, “You Can Leaf Your Hat On” by Tom Jones, “If You Leaf Me Now” by Chicago, “Karma Chameleon” by Culture Club, and “Don’t Leaf Me This Way” by Thelma Houston.

As kicked back as this lizard appears, think less Jimi Hendrix and more John Denver.
