This was taken at the Denio Bird Garden park in Rockport, TX.  I saw these lizards and then they started fighting, I lied down on the boardwalk and fired away lots of images as they fought.  This species is introduced from the Caribbean.

Amazing and dynamic action capture Nate! The long whip tails add so much to the electrifying body lines so beautifully taken and presented here.

Superb shot!

Amazing action shot Nate, Love the low shooting angle and the action itself.

Nate, absolutely wonderful action, and great framing too. I like that one of the combatants is totally off the ground.
