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.

      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!

      Hi again Edith, I was surprised how close he let me get to him! But he was posing so perfectly, he must be vain posing for the camera like that! Thanks again.
