Little Dinosaur

I saw this wonderful little lizard out of the corner of my eye during a hike, so I turned and shot fast - into the sun, which explains the discoloration. But what the hey, I'm posting it anyway. I'm going to play around with it in Photoshop to see if I can repair the color. Maybe if I'm successful, I'll post before-and-after.

Of course, lizards detest having their photos made. The sun is behind me for this one. Can you spot our camera-shy subject?

Looks good whatever the color.

The blue color attracted my attention when I was looking at the portal. That's the thing with wildlife - you gotta take the picture and hope for the best. They don't get into standing and posing while you set up the perfect shot. I like that you posted it as is. It's a great shot and that it was so unplanned and spontaneous actually makes it better.

He is playing hide and seek, so well spotted!

Oh, glancing at the portal I thought you had the/an arch tipping over. I would never have spotted the critter on the tree. Good eyes.

You got a couple of good shots, when I see them, I usually only get the tail in the picture.
