The things we do to get a pic! It's not all plane sailing is it? and as you have said you think you got a good image in the bag only to be brought right back to reality, you gotta work for your great pics. :o)

Well done even for a near miss. Your exposure is right and the composition is well done.

The shallow DOF is'nt distracting but the stick and the hot spots are very distracting to my eye.
Nice colours and POV.
Nice "Near-Miss" photo, thank you for posting.

I like this lizard shot. I tried to shoot some myself, know how they can let you run around. This is good, closer to a "near miss" than a "near hit".
Chris, Let me tell you, that "stupid stick" will get you every time!! ;-)) Enjoyed your notes on the capture.. It's a great lookin' lizard & a nice additon to the near-missed theme.. TFS!

Very nice note, I had a very good time with it and your photo. What you say is very common also in macro shots, everything looks fantastic on the display and then at home is rubbish. Also the other way round, some shots you take with not much interest, come out to be fantastic :D
In this shot although you missed very little you are right it is quite disturbing. Thanks for posting.

Man, what you call "Near miss" would be "great pic" for me. ;) I do understand you were pissed of by the stick. ;)
It's a nice contribution to the theme Chris. Very interesting subject. I did some recontructive surgery in a WS. Hope you find it usefull.

Skinks are preys of my cat too. This is a pretty coloured skink Chris. Your near miss isn't too bad at all, considering how fast they can move. TFS.

Personal assessment of the photo: a perfect near-missed
Good visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent
Personal assessment of the note: complete
I really wish you will get it right next time.

Chris, I know well the experience you have been through. I myself learned we cannot trust the LCD monitor.
I don't think you shot is a bad one. Besides, the reptile is very beautiful, and composition is nice.
