I honestly wish I could've got a better shot here, but I would've had to be paragliding with my camera to do that, for beyond this rock, as this lizards tail falls, is a fall of more 5000 feet.
For those who've been to this side of the Himalayas, this was taken at "Chauli ki Jaali", the highest point of the town.
So this one goes out to you, Big Bro!
Would love to know what it is, though!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Goldy. A nice dedication to Bayram i sure he will be able to give you an ID. You have taken a fine close up with fine detail in the rough looking skin. With natural colours. It looks like you had bright light to work with which you have done so well. TFS.

TFS and G's,

Hi L'il Bro Goldy,

Thanks a lot for this pleasant dedication to me. I loved it.
Perfectly composed and focussed... very succesfull capture indeed. It is absolutely an Amagidae family member but i could not write its exact id since i am not familiar with Indian herptiles brother.
All the best! Have a nice WE!

Hi Bro Goldy,

A wonderful lizard for our brother Bayram. A 5,000 feet drop? I'm glad you stayed where you were. You had a fine view and managed a terrific shot. Good colors and details and a great pose on the rock. I love his face and skin. The pretty blue sky makes a beautiful background. A super composition too.


hello Goldy

WOW ! look at the look of this reptile and in the same time
it is an great eye-contact with you, with fine POV and the
way it is framed on the image, fine focus excellent sharpness and details,



This unmistakenly looks like the summit or peak of something; there is just the sky beyond.
I am intrigued by the similarity of texture on the rock and the lizard. Could that be camouflage?
A pretty interesting shot, Goldy.
Keep it going.

Hello Goldy,
a great dedication to our friend Bayram, a splendid capture of this Lizard taken from an excellent low POV in a very pleasing composition
Best regards

Hello Goldy,
Great photo of this lizard from an excellent POV. Good sharpness, details and natural colours. Very good composition. Nice dedication to Bayram.

Hello Goldy! Nice scene, very nice natural light and colours, perfect sharpness. Good work. Well done!

Hi Goldy
Yikes, you were close to the cliff to capture this little lizard. It's was probably safer for the cute little lizard to stay a ways back. 5000 feet is a long way down. This is a very nice portrait Goldy.

Hi Goldy, good shot and nice lighting. Looks like that the fella is enjoying the bright sunshine on the top of 5000ft. Good dedication to the professor. Well done. Ganesh

Hi Goldy,
very nice presentation of this lizard. the colour are strange and unique to me.
well executed shot. at a very dramatic angle.


Hi Goldy,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the lizard on the rock. The luminosity has a good effect on the colors. have a nice day.


Hi Goldy,
nicely expressive pose of that Agama lizard taken against the sky, perfectly composed! Feeling giddy when considering the very exposed place the picture was taken. Thank you.
With best regards,

Dear Goldy,
I very much like this view of the lizard: it shows the sharp, long nails on the left front leg - as well as the "spikes" on the left back leg in profile.
I am fascinated by the "jawline" and wonder, if the pattern serves as a sort of defense i.e. pretending to be a row of teeth?!?

The body colours match the rock and serve obviously as a perfect camouflage.

The big sized eyes and ears are quite amazing, normally found on animals, who live a "night life".

All in all an interesting lizard; did you see if it had a tail?

Enjoy the rest of your evening,
Kind regards
