No Fear

We were hiking in Saguaro West NP when I spotted this Regal Horned Lizard. At the time I had only my 85 mm macro so I got at ground level to get as close as I could.
I took several images when all of a sudden the lizard rushed right at me. It was quite a surprise to see this lizard coming right at you as you are looking through the lens.

Cool POV and capture, Jim. It might have been reacting to its reflection in your lens, depending on how close you were.
