Shalom David, Superb capture of this heliophilous hardun in basking position. I think it is an dominant male and you captured it in a moment while it display typical behaviour consist of series of vertical movements of the head:). Many thanks for sharing this beauty my friend! Have a great weekend!

Hi David,
Outstanding close-up shot of this great looking Agama with amazing colours and sharp details on its scales. Great pose captured with perfect lighting and against the dark BG it stands out so nicely. Nice expression captured on its eyes. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Kudos.

Spettacolare primo piano di questa lucertola, eccellenti POV e taglio compositivo con BG scuro, ottima nitidezza e buona definizione della "texture", molto belli i colori. Grazie e complimentio. Ciao Maurizio
