Found this fellow in my dads garden in Lusaka.

Any suggestions to what it is ?

He changed colour (and I asume it is a he because he was following a similar creature with less flaring colours)

I put the 1.4x converter on my macro lens

This is the original crop with sharpness and saturation increased in DPP

Hi Staale.
Visitor of your dad garden is amazing and you managed to create a wonderful portrait. Especially I like glance of this charming creature. It poses for you amazingly. Framing is great as well as details of the animal and trunk. BG is sweet too. Wonderful smoothness and colouration. Well done and all the best.
