[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lizards are a very large and widespread group of squamate reptiles, with nearly 5,000 species, ranging across all continents except Antarctica as well as most oceanic island chains.
Sight is quite important for most lizards, both for locating prey and for communication, and as such, many lizards have highly acute color vision. Most lizards rely heavily on body language, using specific postures, gestures and movements to define territory, resolve disputes, and entice mates. Some species of lizard also utilize bright colors, such as the iridescent patches on the belly of Sceloporus. These colors would be highly visible to predators, so are often hidden on the underside or between scales and only revealed when necessary.( Wikipedia notes)

Hi Rajan,
Nice close up of the little dragon.Light on the lizard and dark background makes the picture remarkable.

Hi Rajan,

this is a lovely capture in nice pose. Nice PoV and good clarity on the shot.
Very well done!


Nice shot. Good pov and composition. The colours look a little over-saturated, and may be I would have preferred to crop out the dark left side a bit. Anyways, thanks for sharing the photograph of such a wonderful creature.
