Ornate is Great!

This is an Ornate Tree Lizard.
Lizards don't look at the calendar. They come out when it's warm enough; the smaller ones first, as they have less mass to warm up. Many can change color such that they are darker when they are colder. As you know from wearing a black shirt on a sunny day, darker colors absorb more light as heat.
