While minding my own business at Sweetwater Wetland Park in Tucson this bird comes running down the dirt path right toward me. I have seen more Roadrunners in the last week than I have seen in the last 10 years. I don't know much about lizards but a bystander said it looked like a species known as a "Beaded Lizard"?

Very nice behavioural shot, if possible I would add some more space to the left.

Nice capture. Looks like the lizard lost it's tail in a previous escape.
