Just stood out in my yard and waited for shit to happen.







Changing direction.



Lizard wars. Or is it lizard sex?











Mom and the kids.



Mother carrying a baby.





One baby has another in an apparent submission hold. Tap out dude!!!!!!



The winner of the lizard battle basks on a rock.



Under the rock that the lizard sat on.



Eh. Not much to say about this guy.

Nice vivid colors S.C.:up:

I bought a cheap Canon SX20is just to carry around in my back pack and snap a shot when it comes up. What a pile of shit! My old S3is took way better pictures. I even sent an email to Canon bitching about it.:fu:

I could probably get better quality pictures using my cell phone!:evil:

BTW, send me some humming birds, I'll take good care of them. For some reason, there are none around here.:-?

gorgeous shots!!

do you use a tripod?
are some better than others?

i try to be careful and not touch, but i still make my tripod rattle with my tremors, i blur pics almost as bad as without one.
mayhap, i need more practice or a better tri-pod?
since i can't have less tremors :oops:

Fantastic pictures Scott!

I would love to have all those animals in my yard. I have quite a few different breeds of birds, but no prairie dogs and certainly no lizards.

Cool as hell!

Does your camera have a timer setting? If you have a tripod you can set the timer for 2 seconds or 10 seconds and hit the button and then let go and let it shoot without you affecting the shot.

Really nice shots Scott. I love the color, the exposure is spot on and they are very sharp.

I'd love to see a shot of the humming bird with a slower shutter speed though. I think it would look cool if you could get a shot where the bird's body and head are sharp and the wings are all blurred out...

You have to adjust settings for that? Damn, all mine turn out that way. LOL!

I like Scott's with the wings stopped.

Great shots Scott. I really enjoyed 'em. How fast of a shutter speed do you use to catch the wings so clearly? That's just amazing to me.
Lofty, those are some pretty exotic looking birds. Did you move to the jungle?

And I agree. Lofty, you have some cool birds, wherever you are.

Lovely shots especially of the Humming birds, the lizard no, the snake even more of a no & the stand up burring animals, good to as one f/male is holding one young one in its mouth, but I tought they were in Africa & not the USA.
