Hot, dry, brown and gray
Not this colorful lizard
Posing on a rock. 

Maybe she will see
Him in his many colors
Posing on a rock. 

Watch him arch his back
Puff out his sides to look big
As he does push-ups.

Another sign of spring in the desert are our reptile friends, most scurrying about making it difficult to photograph. But not the eastern collared lizard (Crotaphytus collaris), who like to pose for you on a nearby rock. 

Welcome back, my friend — it is spring time in the Sonoran desert.

Another sign of spring in the desert are our reptile friends, most scurrying about making it difficult to photograph. But not the eastern collared lizard (Crotaphytus collaris), who like to pose for you on a nearby rock. I have other photos of the lizard from earlier springs, and could have easily used one of them, but this image was taken a week ago.

Welcome back, my friend — it is spring time in the Sonoran desert.
