Texas Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus olivaceus)

These lizards are all over the place here. I always hear them skittering away from me while I am walking around the yard or out on the bike/hike trails. It is always a treat to spot one blending into the trees or old wooden fences. The male lizard has blue markings on its abdomen. I have never been able to get one into a position to see it for myself.
