[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beatiful lizzard (Liolaemus tenuis) has a wide distribution in my country, finding them from places near to the sea up to 1.500 meters over sea level. Exemplars reaches 14 cm long. Females have brown-grey colors, while on the other hand, males have the colors shown in the picture.
Males have territorial behaviors, are fast runners and not very cooperative with photographers :o)

Hi Christian
Welcome to TN.

A shot crisp in capture and sharp in focus.The eye contact makes it more lively.The colours on the lizard makes it a quite a beauty to look at.Despite being a fast running model, you managed to get this one in a very nice pose.
You are from a country rich in flora and fauna.And I 'm sure you will find this a great forum to share you captures.

Look forward to more of your posts.Thanks for sharing
