Brilliant Color on a Hot, Summer Day

Today, I’m featuring another recently converted digital file (from a 35mm slide). This colorful, male Eastern Collared Lizard was captured as it sunned on a beautiful, lichen-covered rock in the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains:

Eastern Collared Lizard, male

While the female Eastern Collared Lizard is quite drab in color, the males exhibit the brilliant blue-turquoise-yellow colors that make them stand out.

This image was captured pre-2004, when I was still shooting 35mm slides, captured during one of my many photography trips to the Oklahoma Wichita Mountains. I recently began converting some of those slides to digital files. It will take some time to convert my many slides to digital, but I will be featuring some of my fond memories of early nature photography with you, as I get them converted.
