Whoa-where did that lizard come from?

Brandon spotted it in some wiregrass near a large flatwoods pond. After multiple times of losing it in the vegetation, we eventually found it and got a clean catch. It's within a couple miles of John Jensen's older record, and my recent DOR. Hope you've been well!
