Fine natural history work, I agree with you, we see color but many species don't. The act of disappearance is vital for the species for survival, well done. tfs.

Fantastic study and photo.It surely is well camouflaged. Very nice picture of this lizard in its natural environment. Great colours, lots of details and very good dof. Very informative technical note too - thanks.Regards Siggi

I'm glad I'm not colour-blind. It should be a boring world without colours. Very nice demonstration.

Hello George friend,
Certainly this is a great idea, not anyone thinks some like this! ... I think this kind of communion between the pictures and interesting facts of nature are an ideal complement to TN! ... Make use of post-processed to show them is already a plus ingenious! Congratulations and thank you! ... I have taken some photos of mimetic insects and now I will take this into account more to imagine how predators "see without seeing" these animals! ...
I reiterate my congratulations, you have an invention you know how to reflect in your pictures man!
Regards, TFS & Happy Sunday!

It must be obvious to everyone by now that you're technically very skilful and here you present the Agama lizard in a very interesting manner. I'd guess that it easily catches a moth or other insect being as well camouflaged as in the right version.
A fine presentation!
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Indeed a very good camouflage against the background, not one but two Agama lizards .
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
I wish you a nice weekend,

This is an amazing presentation to demonstrate the camouflage and the b+w piece is superb. You'll make a very good teacher with this kind of creativity.
Thanks for the well thought effort and appreciated indeed.
Kind regards - Jusni

Splendid camouflage. Exceptional focus and very good capture.
Splendid exposure as usual.
this is a real nice scientific presentation with cause and effect shown and explained.
The sharp image of the lizard and the detailed pattern of the body are a wonder in nature, and you presented it so well.
some say that congratulating too much might be unreal, but this honest.
An interesting collage. The question is how many predaors are colour blind?
A good way to show the effect of camouflage though.

Clever and interesting. Thanks. John
Yet another absolutely fantastic post from you!
Not only you managed to show us a very cool and interesting subject here, but you also managed a totally original and terrific presentation - with the irregular (like the pattern) split between these two great pictures.
The idea to convert it to greyscale was excellent and it really gives us a nice insight of how a possible predator "sees" this well camouflaged agama.
Bravo and TFS
a post really inspired with the cutting and desaturation up to the level of gray where the lizard magically disappears
ottimo lavoro!!! ciao sERGIO
