A lizard at the arboretum putting on a show for a nearby female on Friday. His colors were truly unbelievable.

Thanks, Ron. I go down late(arrive at about 4PM) and, in just about 4 hours, can capture a wide variety of subjects. It's always a good day at Bosque, but soon the mosquitos will be out in force.

Always nice to see lizards, Joe - we don't get many in the forum. I guess this one thought that if he couldn't get the ladies with a diamond ring, he would flash his jewel colours at them instead! I always find the ones that can change colours quite amazing!

Thanks for the comments. BTW, it’s a Desert Spiny Lizard.
