this dude looks so stylish in its electric blue-yellow suit...
and "lucky" shot too.
everytime i want to take a pic of a colourful lizard i approach as close as possible, point my camera and sh...oops,they're gone!
(maybe iguanas are not so shy)
This is a great image of a Western Collared
Lizard. I gave it vote #50! Yes, its a member
of the Iguana Family. This looks like a female. GREAT! They must have extended their
range ... into western Colorado!!!
Before this hike, I didn't know that we had any such creature in Colorado either. My husband says that he has seen them before. We saw many of them this particular day hiking through the Colorado National Monument.
Yes, as said on your profile, "so many places, so little time."
We live in a beautiful country and a beautiful world. I never get bored seeing the beauty around me.... even if on my way to or from work. It is also wonderful to have a site such as SP to enjoy the sights that others see.
