This is a very unusual, for me, image and a very interesting one together with your revealing note. And it is so good to see you back here. I really do not think the other website that so many members seem to have run to is a good idea. Whatever, have a good evening and, by the way, I will never forget that you were the first to critique my very first upload here. Geniet wat oor is van die naweek.

I completely understand your reason for not being as active as you would like to be. I too post less frequently now-a-days only because I spend a lot of time with the grandkids, still work full time and am really busy with Church activities.
Your little lizard seems to be a bit shy, but still wants to know what is going on in the world. From what we can see, it looks to be quite handsome and would love to come out in full view, but isn't sure it is completely safe to do so.
A perfectly captured specimen showing exceptional detail and beautiful natural colors. As always, a pleasure to view one of your many beautiful shots from the region of the South Africa.
God Bless, and have a great "Holiday Season"

Great natural ambiance with perfect colour and sharpness.
Thank you for visiting my post.
Anna Eksteen and Ferran Lloret are two known from my early days in TN that I miss a lot. Myself, I was a 'disappeared' for quite some time, frustrated in my case for not having a camera that would allow me to capture what I wanted.
That's why my joy, Anna, is overwhelming to see loom as the head of this beautiful lizard. And I hear your reasons though, I would advise my 53 years, I'm starting to give advice :). My advice is: "DO NOT ALLOW", steal time from sleep, escape to the toilet with a netbook or tablet, you cheat, cheat, lie, be a little irresponsible, but ...! "DO NOT ALLOW." - Your spirit must rebel against reality and transform it. Take time for the soul to express itself, do not let your "DON" (artistic skill that our GOD / ALLAH / YAHWEH / MANITU has given you) is not wasted.
With apologies for my Argentine passion, and a great satisfaction
to hear from you ...

Hi Anna, Another pleasant image of a lizard's head extending out from his cave. I like the natural colours of this picture. We have to be true to natures. That is what nature colour suppose to be. Good use of lights and great POV too. Thank for sharing

All of us have to deal with less pleasant issues than TrekNature sometimes, so I absolutely understand you can't be here everyday. I also used to have breaks: sometimes a week, sometimes even a month or more. But about your photo: seems simple composition-wise, but excellent! Perfect timing - you captured the moment when the lizard just pushed his / her head out of the hole. Pleasant composition with the lizardhead in the left third and negative space in front of him / her. Tack sharp in the subject. Color tones probably got a little, but truly a very little blue overcast, otherwise an excellent shot, something to be truly proud of. Good job.
Best regards, László
