While I know that Arizona is south, it's still in the north - so I was expecting winter (and in that regard I was correct!) and winters and lizards don't normally mix.
So, when I saw this little chap (or maybe chapess) I was rather surprised. Even in the chilly weather it was fast moving as lizards tend to be.
What was interesting was that about 36 hours after I took these pictures this little animals habitat would have been underwater. The pictures were taken in Oak Creek Canyon, and the the creek was gin clear and peaceful - 36 hours later it was a mass of brown water and foam as the water from a significant storm system rushed out of the hills.
