It does look a bit funny, doesn't it? :) But i really didn't touch it. It was just looking at me while i was taking its portrait...just following me with its eyes. It appeared pretty interested in me,too. I guess i should be flattered :)
Anyway...the same lizard as yesterday - Sceloporus occidentalis - a very long name (as Adrian said:)), found in the same desert habitats around "the biggest little city in the world".

Aditional modifications:
Crop, sharpenned and resized for TN

Hope you like it:)

Hi Horia ! You have captured a fantastic lizard, he looks huge on your photo. I love its dark color, and his pose is nice - he is looking at you ! Good contrast with the white stone he is sitting on. excellent details and composition, great POV. Very well done !

Hello Horia
Lots of detail in your photo. I love the rock the lizard is sitting on, it add to the interest of the photo. I like how in focus the Lizard is and the scales stand out nicely. Colour and composition is great. TFS Janice....this little lizard is so cute. :)

Good shot of frozen lizard. Good composition too with some background detail.

Hi Horia, great details in this pic!!!

It seems a 3d photo!
Good balanced in the white.

Hi Horia,
Another great shot of the Lizard with the long name :) This time giving us a completely different view and a better idea of his size. It's a good shot too, great detail and exposure. This along with your last post are very educational for somebody like me who doesn't know much about Lizards. Great work.

I would expect the next command to have been "Spread 'em!" as this lizard has already "assumed the position"...

What amazed me whenever I saw lizards is that they can move sideways in a hurry... Just like hockey players in the play-offs when they are about to be boarded.

Very intersting components in this shot, apart from the amusing lizard! OK that's all the fun we have time for...
Have a great weekend, what's left of it. J.
