Possibly S. occidentalis? Observing ants with my macro lens on a wooden fence that borders the trail.
It had me fooled at first but behavior was different. Whenever ants were nearby, it was always rotating to keep eyes up front at all times.

Description

In late 2019, I finally started seeing fence lizards in my backyard after living here for almost 10 yrs. I just needed to remove a bunch of thick non-native vegetation that the previous owners had planted, and be vigilant about keeping cats out (which is really tough). The cat thing is a real problem around here for herps and birds. Luckily my failing retaining wall provides lots of cracks for the lizards to hide in. I'm seeing all age classes now, which is pretty cool (to me anyways).
