Those lizards are often taking sun baths on the palm trees and in parallel hunting ants on the skeen of tree!

Hi Sochirca,
Excellent and unusual the pose got on the lizard.
Good lighting produced plenty of good details on the lizard skin and also on the rock's texture.
I like the composition proposed with all the empty blue sky to the right, to balance it.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Hello Sochirca,
A fine presentation of a Laudakia Agama against a great blue sky, even if there is perhaps too much sky in this composition. I like the POV and lighting and the excellent sharpness shows fine details of this lizard.
Best wishes,

This is a great photo, although I can't make up my mind about whether there is too much sky. With less the lizard would look a lot more impressive; but on the other hand with so much you feel like you are really out in a desert somewhere. It's best you went with your own instincts. I would be very pleased with a picture this good. Gary
