  1. That tiny, blue spot on its neck has earned it a spot on my Nature in Blue list ;) Posted 12 days ago
    1. That's the tip of a little iceberg of blue across his throat. Posted 12 days ago
      1. I had to look it up after reading your comment, and WOW!

        1. Oh that blue is amazing! Posted 11 days ago
        2. It's funny, I was remembering the blue going all the way across the throat, as it does in the related species near my home (Sceloporus occidentalis). But the blue on the belly makes up for the not-as-much blue on the throat! Posted 11 days ago
          1. Yeah, it's so stunning! The blue belly was a nice surprise! Posted 10 days ago
  2. Cool! It does stand out on the little guy...thanks Christine. Posted 12 days ago
    1. Want to give you a quick tip, or rather explain a system quirk. When you post below somebody's comment, that person will not get a notification of your comment unless it is on a photo of theirs. So it may mean they never see your reply.

      To ensure they see it, use the "reply" link below the comment you intend to reply to. Hope this helps.
