I found this fellow sitting in a tree and watching what was going on below.

I was watering some plants in our yard in Scottsdale on Sunday and was startled by a colorful lizard that looked just like this guy. The colorful scales on his back are a treat.

I hope he was smaller than he looks in the picture!

Kate said...

The camouflage is very effective for this shy animal.

Stephanie said...

Wow, I can't believe you spotted him! Nice camouflage!

Waiting for an unsuspecting bug to come near, then ZAP, lunch.

Fantastic capture! I wonder how big this wonderful fellow is.

Randy said...

Wow he's a big one! He blends in very well.

I would like to try to stay in his skin, for one day. It will not be much "thinking", I'm afraid.

That looks like one of those deadly Gila Monsters! Yikes! Look at the face. It could be a politician!

He almost blends in to his surroundings.
