This eye is amazing, Laurens, and it is sitting there very decorative inside the flower with those pretty violet berries.
Very good shot, thanks

Hello Lou,
A fine capture, taken at night with flash, of a Striped Basilisk Lizard from a great POV to show the head with superb sharpness. The composition is pleasing and shows the lizard coming into the image.
Thanks for sharing this fine image,
Best regards,

Great shot Laurens. i loved this. TFS.

A very good capture of the basilisk Laurens, selective focussing on the eye produced a nice portrait in great detail from a good vantage point. TFS this fine image my friend.

You have used the flash very effectively here.
