Quick post today to announce a small but important update to the North American Nature Photography galleries. Over the past decade, I’ve been collecting so many new images of native lizards in their natural environments all over the continent, that I have expanded the single lizard gallery into five (same as I did last year with wildflowers) in order to make the galleries more digestible and interesting, and for those interested in the science behind the image – to see how anatomical and genetic differences and similarities combined with current taxonomic group categorization are used to classify our native wildlife. Below are the new five categories of lizards, and these will only expand as more of our native lizards are photographed and uploaded.

Click on any image to view the entire new sub-category!

Green Anole

Anoles (Dactyloidae)

Gila Monster

Gila Monsters and Beaded Lizards (Helodermatidae)

Spiny Iguana

Iguanas and Chuckwallas (Iguanidae)

Desert Spiny Lizard

Spiny Desert Lizards and Their Allies (Phrynosomatidae)

Six-lined Racerunner
Whiptails and their Allies (Teiidae)

Stay tuned… I just got back from the Moab Desert and other parts of Utah with a LOT more new lizard photos!

Fuzzy Foot http://ow.ly/AIqXK This fuzzy foot mushroom was found on one of the many fallen/rotting logs that are found near the Lake Jackson Indian Mounds in Tallahassee, Florida just north of Interstate 10. I had a difficult time finding the correct identification for this one (at least I think I did - 98% sure).
