[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Okay so I tried out my 10x Macro filter lens today on my 24-70mm lens. I am excited to capture this lizard which allowed me to get within inches.

The lizard was in the shade so I wish the picture was a little brighter but I am very happy with it.

It is a Brown Anole Lizard with some reddish color to its head.

This is from wiki:

The brown anole (Anolis sagrei) is a lizard native to Cuba and the Bahamas. It has been widely introduced elsewhere, by being sold as a pet lizard, and is now found in Florida and as far north as southern Georgia, Texas, Taiwan, Hawaii, Southern California,[1] and other Caribbean islands.

This species is highly invasive.[2] In its introduced range, it reaches exceptionally high population densities, is capable of expanding its range very quickly, and both outcompetes and consumes many species of native lizards.[3][4][5] The brown anole's introduction into the United States in the early 1970s[6] has altered the behavior and triggered a negative effect on populations of the native Carolina anole (Anolis carolinensis, also known as the green anole), which have generally been relegated to the treetops.

Hi! Great details of this Lizzie :) Good focus and sharpness, very nice colors, even if in shade. tfs

Hello Elena,
You chose a lizard, not an insect, for your macro photo progression: this is an excellent sharp shot from a quite special point of view!

WOAH WOMAN, you so are the nature girl!! You must be in Eden somewhere cuz lizards around here do NOT pose for me like this!! :) Your progression is impressive to say the least!

Eye contact INCREDIBLE; detail picture perfect and this has to be my best lizard shot now!

  • Great
