A bold lizard

Ornate tree lizard (Urosaurus ornatus), 7 May 2013.

This is an ornate tree lizard (Urosaurus ornatus). They are small and usually common, so often overlooked by lizard enthusiasts. However, they are beautiful, curious, and quite entertaining to watch.

And like Bane, they are bold.

Neither Lula (our beloved female pit bull mix) nor the lizard would have allowed me to stage this photo if I tried 🙂
