[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

This picture was shot at Kalkere forest. I was lucky to get a Robber-fly with nice lighting. I also had the opportunity to shoot this at the road side when we were returning to the car.

Garden Lizards help control pests in the field and contribute to the betterment of human beings. The lizards are considered a specie related to dinosars.

Very lovely shot. Murali.
The sharpness on the head is fantastic,
and I like the way the body gradually blurred away.
I really like those colors, so soft and beautiful.
Great POV and pose resulting in an excellent composition.
TFS. : )

hi Murali
very good shot, good sharpness.

Beautiful shot Murali.
Excellent focus on the lizard with wonderful details.
I also like the composition very much with the tail pointing to the lower right and the head of the lizard pointing to the upper left corner.
Very well done. Best regards, Harry

Hi Murali,
Superbly capturing this changeable lizard (Calotes sp). Well focused, sharp, great details of its scales.


Hi Murali,
This reminds me of a picture i shot long time back. The colors and the sharpness is amazing. those leaves add value to the picture and the shows the habitat of this lizard.
The composition is good too

Thanks. with best regards.vab.
