[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Got a fairly good close up of this chap. Unfortunatly I didn't have my macro lens on me. I could get right up to him.

The bigger these guys are the braver they are too. This one was about 1 meter I think

Hi Staale,

This is a good close up of this lizard with very good detail. The lizard is also very clear and you have a nice blurred BG. TFS

Hello Staale,

One meter!!! What a lizard! You should be brave also in order to photography it! ;-)

I like the composition you did and the nice profile you got. Excellennt POV. The only thing is that I would have removed the brown thing in the foreground near its leg.

Bye and TFS!

Hi Staale,

Exceptional macro. Play it with some color and sharp detail is very nice. Good and description provided.

Hi Staale,

A superb portrait capture of this long-tailled and long-necked beauty from low POV with great details on its scalation. The DOF, focus and BG are also wonderful too.
TFS and greetings from Adana,
