I was playing around with my digital camera, testing it out, when I found this lizard out in the desert. These things are cool. They let you get pretty close and don’t seem as nervous as other lizards. I saw some that were more colorful and I will try to get more photos of them. On some days you can see a bunch of them. The collared lizard is more plump and larger than the other varieties around here and definitely one of my favorite reptiles I’ve seen around here. It was captured on my Canon dslr and I actually cropped this one. Usually, when I print film, I don’t crop, but with digital anything goes!
