Very beautiful capture, Ryan! His camouflage is really good, but you detected him anyway! Greetings, Anne

Thank you Kojak, Anne, and Hamza! Actually, after I saw him and got down to take his picture, he crawled closer. :)

Greetings, Ryan

Isn't he cute? Unlike most girls, I like lizards. I think they are adorable, and this little guy is obviously not afraid of you at all.

Kim, I thought I would have to be very quick but non-threatening to take his photo. I was all focused and ready before he ran away, but instead he came crawling forward and ruined my focus. I actually had to back up a little. :)

Nice pets he has, the owner of the garden, Ryan! ;)) A pretty chap! Thanks for those photos!

Greetings, May

Thanks May! But no collar or tags around his neck...maybe he is wild after all. :)

…and the gardener is all alone!? ;) On the other hand there are so many places, he can move to. Without much thinking, I know of half a dozen places in my country alone, which wear his name. Bridges, caves, mountains, alps… ;)

Wonderful play on light and spots, Ryan. This is a great capture. I have yet to successfully shoot one of the many lizards in my garden. Greetings from Miami, Mary

Thank you Mary. Lizards are so fast, you can only catch them when they let you. Greetings, Ryan

Hi Ryan, this must be a really photo addicted lizard :-) I saw them in Vista, CA, but nevertheless i think this is also a Long-Nosed Leopard Lizard, (Gambelia wislizenii)

I love Your gallery, thanx 4 sharing!

Best wishes from Good Old Germany, Bernd
