Hello friends in TE.

Oriental garden lizard is a friendly reptile. I found this one chasing insect near my house. I was thinking of framing the whole body but the tail is too long for closer look. I managed some close shots even with my 60mm optics.

The Oriental Garden Lizard (Calotes versicolor) is an agamid lizard found widely distributed in Asia.

Thanks for viewing!

salam akhi Jusni
two great shot of beautiful Garden Lizard, with great sharp focus, POV and eyes contact. you nicely framed and composed them.
There are several lizards here from the family Agamidae. Ours similar to your garden lizards. but they are from different genera and species. All of them show family characteristics.
many thanks for sharing, best regards and salams

Hi Jusni,

TWo wonderful shots of your Oriental Garden Lizards. I especially love the full body picture. He's in a wonderful position, excellent lighting, colors and details. Great view of his eye, face and skin.


Hello Jusni,
A great pair of shots of a beautiful lizard.
Not sure if you really needed a macro lens for this though.
It kinda limits your DOF a bit,but still very nice.
Cheers & TFS

Hi Jusni,
Beautiful double portrait, great sharpness on the lizard on both, but I partially agree with Steve (Lord_Potty) that for the one on the bottom You didn't need a macro lens. I like the upper photo better, because there aren't oof foreground elements on it (although they were unavoidable on the lower shot). Nice pair of images without doubt, great job MF. Congrats and tfs.
Have a nice Sunday, friendly regards, László

Salam Jusni,
This is an excellent double, showing a fine facial close-up and the whole body of the Oriental Garden Lizard.
Both images are of high quality with excellent sharpness and colours so that we can get a fine impression of what this Agamid looks like.
Thanks and have a good week,

wow..what a friendly guy you got here. the pose is very exciting looking and staring st you in a lively manner.
The combination of the images is very useful in looking at its beauty. Your 60mm is splendid and your stalking is excellent too.
Keep on hunting.
