Bufoniceps laungwalaensis, also known as the or Rajasthan toad-headed lizard, is an agamid lizard found in India (Rajasthan Desert, Jaisalmer District). It is the only species in the genus Bufoniceps. Small and stout, the Lizard is very alert and agile when the sand is warm.
The challenge of taking a running image of this Lizard is only a few individuals actually run away with speed and agility. Most other individuals just try to escape under the sand. I observed more than a dozen individuals and this particular guy was very active. It would run on the slightest provocation thus making it possible to create such an image.
The next challenge was it would run in indefinite planes and rarely run parallel to the camera thus making it extremely difficult to get it in sharp focus. Also it would run really fast thus making it mandatory to use an extremely fast shutter speed to be able to get a sharp image. I finally made this image where all factors fell in place.
