Hey Victor, how did you manage to take a shot of this very shy lizard?! We have one around our place, but the moments it senses somebody approaching, it runs off to safety.

You have captured the details so nicely. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Victor,

Good detail on the eye and head of the lizard. It stands out well from the background.
