This is a smacker! The details you captured on this Ocellated skink is just stunning. I just love the way the colours and details in the patterns change from the tail, upwards to the headpart. This photograph is just great. Great camerawork in all aspects. I appreciate your sharing this lovely Skink with us. Best regards.

This is the most beautiful picture of a Skink I have ever seen, Radomir.
My goodness, what a point a view and what amazing focus on the entire subject!
You have surpassed yourself in nature photography in this shot, my friend. Hats off to you.
Thanks and regards.

A great many species aesthetic attraction.
And technical point of view is very successful.
A very interesting species to see a big chance in nature.
Sharpness and detail with a very ingenious composition.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Radek and nice to see another addition from you African trip :)
This is a superb skink and a lizard i would very much like to meet one day, too.
The colors and pattern on its scales is gorgeous and i also really like the great pose you've caught it in here - curled up like that creates a very good composition for shots like this.
The fill-in flash worked very well again (as in your other photos) and has brought in some nice extra details and light.
Well focused and exposed, as well.
...and it's surprisingly big - when i first looked at the photo i thought it was about 15cm long, but then i read in your not that it's way bigger :))
Overall, a lovely post, my friend.
Bravo and TFS
PS: i e-mailed you some time ago...i was hoping to maybe get an answer to the problem i raised then...if you have the time :)

When I saw this I though, is this lizard polish? ...now I know it is african :)
You are an expert with reptiles, and it not an easy task. I trier some times and difficult to get good results.
I can feel the texture of this one looking at this photo.

how come that so few people notice your masterpiece on TN? Whatever, this IS a dreamshot and I am truly jealous :-) being absolutely unable to achieve a similar result. A make it a favorite of mine. You did this one with your usual Coolpix?
