You present us a very strange creature. It's ugly... and beautiful at the same time. The effect created by the bubbles and the waves suits the patterns of the animal very well. Moreover, the lighting and the sharpness as well as the colour management are superb. But most important is the deep effect that your picture creates... the monster that comes straight from the sea!

This is a truly beautiful shot of a truly scary looking creature.
You have composed a great shot and must be applauded for that.
Thanks for sharing the good notes with us.
This is a superbly impressive capture of what we call in the UK a frog or a Toad, But you have a Prehistoric one here!!
The focus is spot on as is the sharpness, The only downside is that the 800 pixel length upload limit doesnt let us enjoy this in the detail it deserves.
All the Best

What a take of the lizard, its coat looks lethal. My initial thoughts were that it was a frog but then, the claws and eyes gave a clear picture!
Well done, a wonderful take!
Thanks for sharing!

A real 'beauty' taken from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and contrast with the surface that it is on.
In fact this is the first time I have seen a photo of a Regal Horned lizard and this might be a first on TN.
Thanks for posting this one!

My oh my, Jane! Where those creatures do live? Close to your home? Where did you take this picture, I am amazed! I see myself crossing a street and wait for the King Lezard (remember Jim Morrison) to finish crossing the road. It looks half frog, half lizard and those spikes are very impressive. Your picture is cristal sharp, the colours as natural as can be. Many thanks for the informative notes,

Wow, this frog-like Lizard certainly looks very 'regal' with a crown on the head! What a fascinating creature and so well captured flat on its belly! Great details and colours and I like the low angle. Excellent work, Jane!
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla
