14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Feeling Blue

When camping in Kruger Park I saw this blue lizard climbing out of a tree and walking toward some dead leaves. I don't know anything about reptiles, but I thought this one was beautiful and quickly grabbed my camera and lay flat on the ground in front of the lizard. It was a real little poser and gave me time to take some photos of him before he decided to walk off and disappear. Curious of what I just photographed I looked it up in a book. It was a blue headed agama lizard.
