The lizard is beautiful indeed, a very nice photo.
Well, as "nasty" as the cholla is, I am DEFINITELY not more comfortable around the rattlesnake! Even the jumping cholla doesn't scare me like that snake! Your photo of the bloom was especially nice.
that lizard looks like an Agma of some colouration. What an absolute cracking shot.
these are super duper photos. have you noticed that photos no longer enlarge when clicked on? I tried that with the first shot - I was hoping for a better look at the color on his tail. no matter, the color is beautiful. that last shot just blows me away. I love everything about it. happy day to you and your buddy.
you made me laugh on the rattlesnake statement. really like that lizard!
Totally get that. I always give cholla a wide berth. Hope it wasn't one of those "jumping cholla."
