[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I shot this male Oriental Garden Lizard in its mating colours. The foliage by way of background is a bit too busy, but I couldn't help it.

The oriental garden lizard, eastern garden lizard or changeable lizard (Calotes versicolor) is an agamid lizard found widely distributed in Asia. It has also been introduced in many other parts of the world.

Thanks for looking.

Hello Ram,
Try telling this beautiful lizard that his BG is a bit busy and I'm sure he will just smile:) I love it, so colorful and compliments the lizards gorgeous markings perfectly. Cute facial expression and nice eye contact. A winning image in my book any day!!

Hi Ram
This lizard has a very disdainful attitude!
Interesting species that I had never seen before.
