Usually while backpacking I'll see all sorts of lizards and snakes and other assorted reptiles quickly move out of the way while I make my way down the trail. Last Saturday I can across thisfairly large sized Lizard who stood difiant in the middle of the trail on his rock and never moved out of the way. I got as close as 2 feet away from him and he just stayed on his rock as I walked by him. I was a good 5 feet away when I snapped this picture, using the 12x leica IS lens on my Panasonic to zoom up close. If you know what kind of Lizard he is I'd love to know. I've never seen one like him before in the area.

I can't tell you what type of lizard it is, but I like him. Nice picture. I don't get any lizards where I am (well, ok... newts, but I'm not sure they count) and I kinda like them.

Nice pattern on that one.

Yes, it is an interesting lizard you captured in that image JinE. Pretty neat.

Eric, newts are amphibians and not lizards. But, in form they look very much the same.

This sort of thing wouldn't normally interest me, but I like it. I think it is because of the dof and the light scattered over and around him.

I agree with Ferny, the light is very nice.

Geoffs, I had always wondered about Newts. I'd only ever seen them in damp places... now I know why.
