This lizard appears imposing as he commands a regal view atop his lichen-ridden rock. His majesty looks all the more royal with his unique blue-scaled collar. However, he has a frail little heart that is fearful of even a casual hiker like myself and runs along to do his business elsewhere.
These are found hurrying along rocks, dirt, up and down trees, and they are quite difficult to capture in a picture because of that. Thankfully, this guy was poised on a rock above me and I could get some.
That beautiful blue collar is absolutely amazing!
