Lizard in Zion National Park

Do you ever dream of basking in the sun with towering sandstone cliffs on one side of you and a rushing river on the other? If you do, you might find this lizard is your neighbour:

I’m not sure what kind of lizard he is. But I really liked the contrast in texture between his skin and the sandstone rock.

I made both of these images with my 24-105mm lens at 105mm. It didn’t require a super telephoto lens as he let me get quite close to him before he started doing his push ups and scooted off.

    Anne love your photos and blog. Are you planning to be in eastern Sierra early June?

    • Hi Kent, no, we actually decided to go below the mountains around Mojave and come up the western side. I do love the eastern Sierra’s though. We were there a couple of years ago to see Mono Lake. We will probably go next year. Thank you for your compliments!

    I’m no herpetologist, but it looks like a bearded dragon. My daughter has one as a pet.
