This is a Bearded Dragon (eastern form), they are quite prolific in my area and can often be spotted sun-baking on the grass, or like this one striking a series of sculptured poses that make them look like bits of discarded tree.  I assume the ‘living sculptures’ are an attempt to fool insects or smaller lizards into wandering close enough for a quick grab, though the only thing I saw this fellow eat were the abundant yellow dandelion flowers that dotted the grass before his arrival.

    I have a friend who has three that she keeps in her home – well cared for! What a treat to see one in the wild!

      I love the lizards, fortunately I live close to a Nature Reserve with fresh water and I am often treated to a sight.
