I see these lizards every day. There are a lot of them around here which is no surprise considering the abundance of bugs. However, I had never gotten a close look at one because they skitter off at the slightest noise. But a couple of days ago I was wandering around with my telephoto lens on and was able to get some pictures from what this lizard considered a safe distance. I was surprised to discover the vibrant blue on his throat and belly as well as in the pattern on his scales. What a fine looking creature.
