[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Oriental Garden Lizard, Eastern Garden Lizard or Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) is an agamid lizard found widely distributed in Asia. It has also been introduced in many other parts of the world.
It is an insectivore and the male gets a bright red throat in the breeding season leading to a common incorrect name of "Bloodsucker".

Helllo Ram,
Very archaic looking creature this "Bloodsucker". It has a vivid eye, but I'm sure that it is totally harmless. Very well taken shot with good sharpness and an interesting point of view. Fine colors too.
Herzliche Grüsse

Very nice congratulations
