Living so close to the Rocky Mountains and several national parks and monuments, we see wildlife all the time. With the diverse landscape (from pine-filled forests to red rock deserts), we see everything from deer to lizards, bear to cougars (though you really don’t want to meet the last two face-to-face). This little fellow — he’s only about two inches long — was scrambling along the rocks looking for some shade, and probably a place to hide from my lens.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SOME OF THE WILDLIFE THAT MAKES ITS HOME IN YOUR PART OF THE WORLD.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

He’s a cute little guy 🙂 Nice shot!
Thanks. He was a little camera shy, and I was glad that I had a long lens on so I didn’t have to get too close to him.
I see those runnig from under my patio in the summer. My son used to collect them in the summer, feed them with flies and bugs, Here is my contribution:http://sillarit.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/a-photo-a-week-challenge-wildlife/
Oh yes, he looks very wild indeed. 🙂
Yes, he’s one of those dangerous, attacking lizards of Southern Utah. He can knock you over with the power of his swiftly, swishing tail.
Beautiful lizard–they blend in so well. Thanks for posing another great challenge. Here is my response: https://naomibaltuck.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/campfire-story/
