Fred......A red headed Agama

If you have a second try the lightbox key L

I call him Fred as I am completely uncertain what creature he actually is, though it might be a African Rainbow Lizard (Agama agama ). However if anyone can confirm the identity I will be very grateful.

(Seems that this is the red headed Agama....or Spider-man lizard"

 

I took the shot from a jeep as we were crossing a small river bed in the Maasai Mara in Kenya. Fred was just on a tree as we passed by I got one quick shot and he vanished. I thought the shot would be awful but I am quite pleased with the results under the circumstances. Its had a huge crop but the colours are as they were.

 

Anyway whatever Fred is he is a handsome little devil. Fred of course might be a lady lizard in which case I apologise

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY
