This is a journal of nature-related observations made in my local community of Cuyamaca Woods. This community is found in the Cuyamaca Mountains of San Diego County, California. Periodically, I might post a "diversion from the Woods" - nature observations made on an outing elsewhere.

The Western Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis)
A large male western Fence Lizard was brought by Jinx today. He was rescued as rapidly as possible, and after a short photo session, transported to a safe, feline-free place.
His blue-ish dorsal scales and brilliant blue belly are classic.
