Nature’s Test

A molting greater earless lizard basks in the sun along the Tom's Thumb Trail in McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona in April 2018

I had only been in Arizona for three weeks when I met this molting greater earless lizard on the Tom’s Thumb Trail. As I was photographing it a young woman pointed out the lizard to the man hiking with her but he shrugged his shoulders and kept going. Probably that’s nature’s way of telling her that he isn’t worth her time but I suppose there is a remote possibility that you could both be a wonderful person and not fascinated by lizards.
