Near Pony Express trail

This Eastern Collared Lizard (Crotaphytus collaris collaris) posed for me as I was heading up Peak 6323 near the Pony Express Trail as it heads west from Lookout pass.

Love lizards!

Seems like hiking and lizards go together like wine and cheese. Wouldn't be the same without them. Great shot. CJ

Re: Love lizards!

This one was quite the poser. I was able to get several different angles of him and he seemed to be rather tolerant of my presence.
I've been trying to figure out if there is such a species as a "ring" necked lizard since this one was the first I've seen with those markings around the neck. Thanks for your comments.

Re: Very cool

Yes, I think Dean was thinking about the
Ring-Necked Pheasant.

Collared Lizards are too cool for school.

Re: Very cool

Dang, that WAS a lizard. Well, I'm just glad it wasn't a pheasant. Thanks Larry. : )
