Canyonlands NP, Island in the Sky district, Utah

there was a lot of scurrying wildlife at various locations in the southwest...startled rabbits, skittish chipmunks, and these common side-blotched lizards (uta stansburiana)...they were hard to capture, but this one stopped long enough for a revealing pose

He really was amazingly patient with our photographic efforts. Great close up of him, contrasting his color and texture with that of his native environment. ~BV~

I would run too if I were on those hot rocks and barefooted :) Well done capturing it.

Great capture of this lizard. His coloration lets him blend into the sand really well. V.

Well shot indeed! Great detail.

He also does blend with his surroundings too. He doesn't look too big so I guess I would be alright around them.
T-Rex size would be a bit hard to handle.

A fine catch of this handsome fellow. Nice with this shadow. "V"

A nice little dragon you've caught there David.

A handsome little fellow. The shadow of his head almost makes him look like a T-Rex! V

One of the things I enjoy about the southwest is the chance to see lizards, something we don't have around here. Terrific shot of this little guy on his red perch. V
