Splendid shot of this curious lizard! I wonder how large it is. I like the details on its skin, or maybe I should say its scales? Excellent sharpness, framing and composition with an interesting presentation.
My compliments and best regards
Great lizard! It must have been an exciting encounter! Here in Poland lizards are very small (about 20cm).
Nice pic showing the lizard where it should be. The composition is well thought out in my opinion.
I meddled with the tones and sharpness in WS.
