Blue-headed Tree Agama

Blue-headed Tree Agama Acanthocercus atricollis
Lake Ziway, Ethiopia

     While my primary focus is birds, I am very happy to see other organisms too, and reptiles in tropical areas always seem to have a special appeal. This Blue-headed Tree Agama was sunning itself in the open, dangerously exposed to aerial predation it seemed to me - but I was happy that it posed for a photograph!

  4. Birds are always a lot of fun but to agree to photograph something else is also very beautiful. The Blue-headed Tree Agama I find really shine!

    1. Not so big, really. About 20 cm I would say.

  6. The smallest lizards are often more colorful than bigger ones, it seems!
    Great catch!
