Wow, love those photos! I've always had trouble photographing lizards, they tend to run away from me :P
Good job!

Nice lizard shots. Look like your iguana lizards are a bit smaller and darker than ours here in Florida. I love lizards - and photograph them all the time around here!

love lizards, can he hard to photograph at times. Looks like they are both eastern bearded dragons. Have come across them a bit when bushwalking up the coast, from my little bit of knowledge I think the males are typically are darker than the females.

Ah...bearded dragons - that would explain why they looked smaller and darker than iguanas...they're not iguanas! I have seen a few bearded dragons in a pet store, but never in the wild. Surprisingly we don't have them wild here in Florida. Yet. :)

interesting here is a link to wiki the central and eastern bearded dragons, looks like there could well be a sizable population of central bearded dragons in the US from illegal imports.
