The last picture is of the same lizard as the other three, the white balance was just off on the camera.

I see a lot of Desert Spiny Lizards where I live and it doesn't look like them. The last photo you have is of a different lizard and it could be a Desert Spiny Lizard but not the other 3 photos. You might want to post the last one separately as another spotting.
