Sun soaker

With its belly flat on the roadway, a western fence lizard soaks up the late afternoon sun and heat from pavement along a country road near Elkton, Ore., on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2012. Western fence lizards are found in California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Nevada.

The photos are actually of three different lizards I found basking on a country road near my home.  They're only about four inches long, but in this shot the little lizard looks a little like a giant alligator.

The lizards seemed to be enjoying the hot pavement so much they didn't want to move.

Just a little smile.  I love the claw in this one.
