Lizards are very common to the desert — they are everywhere. This one just happen to be in our yard, showing off all his color.

He sits on the rock

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.
