Great Basin Collared Lizard Great Basin Collared Lizard some guy  
On a sunny day with an air temperature of 91 degrees and rock temperatures so hot I couldn't lean my hand on them for support, a collared lizard lets me and the camera get so close to it that I can reach out and touch it on the back. This confuses the lizard but he doesn't run off until after I do it a second time. No need to use a noose when you can get this close.





A big male collared lizard lets me follow him around closely from rock to rock. A collared lizard gets photobombed by some guy in a silly hat then runs away in disgust. I don't blame him.
