Rabbits and Lizards on South Camp Rd.

Two of the most common sights while biking near the Colorado National Monument on South Camp Road are rabbits and lizards. Today was no exception. Here are some pictures:

There were two rabbits near the entrance to Wingate Park. 
This one looked a little nervous.

This one didn't seem to mind my presence at all.

I believe that this is a whiptail lizard.
Perhaps the western whiptail...
Anyone else out there know?

It was very active, and ate several small insects as I followed it.

A short video of the lizard looking for insects in the grass:
