Hi Annick

Always a pleasure to see reptiles in your gallery!
And this little fellow makes no exception - it looks gorgeous. I really like the details you managed to get from its head and the texture given by those small and very smooth scales.
Very good low POV and good magnification, as well. Sorry...but i can't help you with the ID on this one :(

Cheers and TFS

excellent sharpness and details, lovely natural colors.

nice detailed shot! very nice pov and dof. great sharpness too
