Gila Forest Collared Lizard and a lizard on my Hat: Einstein07

This is a picture of a “collared lizard” that we found (actually four of them) in the Gila National Forrest.  The puffed up and tried to intimidate us.  It didn’t work as you can see!  Later I found another smaller lizard with a blue throat.  I was chasing him while he was on a fence.  After a while I leaned down to look for him but couldn’t find him.  He climbed onto my hat when I wasn’t looking.  My mom had to tell me he was sitting on my head!  He was taking a free ride and hiding at the same time.
