Eastern Collard Lizard  13028 blog framedEastern Collared Lizard — Image by kenne

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

Blow out his sides to look big

As he does push-ups.

Capturing The Moment — Eastern Collared Lizard   2 comments

Esperero Trail Wildflowers Spring 2013Eastern Collared Lizard — Image by kenne

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.
