Hello Maite,
Fine capture of this lizard. Good POV and comp. I especially find the long toe on the hind foot fascinating, as well as the expression in the eye.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Hi Maite,
The big stuff...
Wonderful reptile...
Contrast is hard due to sunlight. Focus is a bit not-on-the-head..
That said..interesting pic. It must has taken an effort to get there and luck and patience to capture such an amazing animal.
Have a nice day

Bonita foto llena de matices, colores y detalles. Agradecido y saludos: Cas_orla.

Una excelente captura Maite, a pesar de no resaltar por el colorido o la belleza del animal, el punto de vista captado, la demostración de lo árido del sitio volcánico y su buena nitidez ameritan su publicación.
Buen trabajo.
Un cordial saludo... Ricardo

cuadro agradable..i love watching reptile photographs but scared to click if too close to them.Way to go Maite!!

That's a goodie, Maite!

Gallotia is not often seen in pics, and you presented it well even the blue dots are there. Thank you for showing us.

You know that the animal is interesting to biologists, because: the island form of the Lizard is bigger than the mainland form. Why is this so? On other islands (Galapagos, Mauritius, Seychelles et al.) you also find bigger lizards or turtles than on the mainland. There are interesting exceptions to this rule.

Sincerely, Dietrich

Hi, dear Maite.
Thank you for your kindness and interest.
I like this picture and its impressive diagonal composition. I like exposure despite the complex light conditions. I also like great sharpness and details of the FG and main subject and blurred a bit neutral BG. As usual, very nice picture by you. My best wishes and compliments.

Hello Maite,
Lovely details have been captured in this little fellow!
I like the point of view exposing the lizzard nicely, good light and fine colours...
This is a well balanced composition!
