Hello Pam. I like this chap, I've seen these on TV before, and is it true that these are not lizards but a order/family unto themselves?
I think the picture is overexposed and with all those grey tones that was always going to be difficult. Nice composition though.
I've posted a workshop, i've given the picture a tighter crop and upped the saturation a bit.

El tercer ojo... el principal punto por el que siempre se menciona esta especie... mis recuerdos de dicumentales televisivos de la infancia.
Coincido con la crítica de PDP sobre la imagen... poco colorido y algo sobre expuesta.
La perspectiva y composicion son agradables de todas formas.
The third eye... the main point by which always this species is mentioned... my memories of documentary televising of the childhood.
I agree with the PDP critic on the image... little colorful and something over exposed.
The perspective and composition are pleasant in any case.
Pam, I think Paul hit the nail on the head here. Thanx for posting this interesting specimen!
Hi Pam, I am becomming just another torn in the side. Paul's right. Very interesting looking Tuatara.
Exquisite shot Pam. Timing for the shot is perfect.I think the picture is overexposed too like PDP.

Great pov and composition. Pose is very nice too.
