[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was down in Nashville Tennessee this past weekend visiting my daughter and managed to come across this tiny Fence Lizard enjoying the sun.

The lighting was terrible as the sun was out in full, and the little fellow picked a whitish colored wall to perch on. Luckily he stayed still long enough for me to figure out what exposure would allow me to capture detail, yet keep the bright glare of the wall to a minimum.

The scale coloring of eastern fence lizards are as variable as their living quarters. Those living in sandy areas tend to be more lighter in color. Other colors can include reddish, brown, or nearly black. They also may possess lengthwise stripes, crossbars or crescents.

These littly guys are extremely fast, yet usually rely on the sit and wait game to obtain a meal. They feed on numerous insects including flies, grasshoppers, termites, spiders and other arthropods.

I will post a full length body shot in the WS.

Hello Ron,
Splendid capture from a very close range. Excellent clarity, perfect focus and nice colors.
I found very rarely lizards and they are very shy.
It was very difficult for my to shoot images with this species.
Thanks for sharing!

Hello Ron.
I like your capture.
It is very pleasant to view, although it has a lot of light textures it is nicely exposed.
Great details too.
Regards, Felipe.

Hello Ron,
A very nice close-up of this Fence Lizard. The details of the head and front leg are shown with superb clarity and natural colours against a great contrasting BG. This one seems new on TN.
Nice to see the WS too.
TFS and have a great week,
