Riverside County, California, US
We found this little guy hiding in the brush in Eaton Canyon's Willow forest.
Observed near the Alluvial Scrub at Hahamonga Watershed Park, CA
Photo by Dana Cole. Perhaps a female. During the spring and summer, males develop deep blue patches on their flanks, such that people sometimes call them "blue bellies". Lots of fun to watch....
