It was funny seeing this Prairie Lizard with its back legs stretched out soaking up the morning sun. It couldn’t care less that I was around pointing a camera at it. It even dozed off a few times and I had to wait for it to open its eyes to get the photo I wanted.
The Lizards are the only wildlife that I can count on to get photos of here lately. I enjoy photographing them, but I am sure most people would get bored with my blog if I posted nothing but Lizard photos.
How I Got The Shot – Relaxed Prairie Lizard
I was walking my property with my Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens attached.
