Is this lizard with turquoise markings a Texas Spiny Lizard?

I've never had a Texas spiny lizard let me get this close. They are usually very skittish. It's August in San Antonio, TX. It's not like he's in a stupor from the cold or anything!


It looks like he might have grown a new tail at some point ...


After I took over a dozen photos he said 'Enough of this' and scuttled off ...


Is this a color variation of a Texas spiny lizard that I've just not noticed before?

Thank you for any information to satisfy my curiosity.
