Gerard, this is a stunning picture of this very different Lizard from America.
The shot taken on the ground and with bright sun overhead has been well managed except for the eye that gets shaded in this light.

Hello Gérard,
What a remarkable lizard. Beautiful colours and excellent sharpness. From a lower POV it would have been even more interesting, I think.

Hello Gerard,
What a great capture of this colorful lizard. I have been out West quite a few times over the years, but never got a shot of this beautiful species.
Lizards images can be a challenge to compose as you always want to include the entire subject into the frame. The ones with exceptionally long tails can give you fits, especially when you want to show off their attractive features in good detail. You managed quite well with this particular specimen. Awesome markings and wonderful pose!!

Salut Gérard

C'est une excellente photo de ce lézard du désert américain
qui si photographié en moins petit dans l'image l'effet de
camouflage serait plus accentué, TFS


Hello Gerard,

You're capturing well this lizard by a good macro and very excellen tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the long lizrd which had a spot pattern of black and red in the brown body. It's also interesting that the body is protective coloring of the desert ground. And, the shadow projected to the ground draws out a good impact in the whole.

Kind regards,

Hello Mr.Gerard,
I haven't seen such coloured species in our area.Not easy to capture.Well captured with splendid light and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,
