On our trip last summer to Arizona, we traveled north from Phoenix, and stopped at a park along the highway. I'm always carrying my camera and looking for the little details. I caught sight of a little lizard sheltering in the shade. It took a few tries, and I got a nice picture of this cutie! This little lizard had found some meager shade under a fence rail. He looked like napping and keeping cool was his first priority.
I was quick enough to photograph a few more lizards during the week:
