Hoi Laurens,
Geweldige dieren om te zien, ik zie ze nog voor mij op de brug die Peter gisteren al beschreef. Een land om naar terug te verlangen zeker wat fotografie betreft.

Groet en een fijn weekend.

Hello Lou,
A superb capture of this Iguana Lizard Taken from a great POV with fine sharpness. The composition is great and rotating the image a little was a good idea.

Hallo Lou,
Lijkt wat kleuren betreft erg veel op die van gisteren. Prachtig. Wij hebben toen alleen groenen gezien. Niet de juiste tijd denk ik. Uitstekend moment om af te drukken, daardoor een erg goede pose en compositie. Het licht is schitterend. Super scherp.
Prettig weekend,

Hi Laurens. What a fantastic looking animal this is. I like the POV so we can see the side view. Which you have taken with fine detail and rich colours. Well done TFS.

Have a good weekend.

Hi Laurens,

Thanks for posting.

great capture,Lou
amazing pose and composition

best sERGIO

Hi Lou,
Once again,this is an excellent sharp and colourful image of the Iguana.
I thought the leaf on the left was a bit distracting and there was a bit too much of the log on the right,so I have done a cropped version in the workshop to see if you like it.
I think it gives more impact to the Iguana itself.
Your photo is still very good as it is though.
Cheers & thanks for sharing.

Hello Laurens
A very interesting reptile captured in a neat fashion in its own habitat.I like the way the colours on the reptile turn bright under the ambient light.

Superb eye contact.One gets the feeling that it is contemplating your move or its own next move.The body texture is remarkable.It looks crumbled and quite leathery.

My compliments.

Laurens, What a beauty. Lovely capture and the details are so sharp. Superb. I just wonder how was your feeling when you saw this fella. TFS Ganesh sorry am finished with green color.

HelloLaurens !
Another wonderful shot of this Iguana ! Like on your previous picture, I love all the details on the skin, scales and face, and the vivid colors are wonderful, and the composition is great with the branch making a nice diagonal. Even if he was shy and climbed away from you, you managed to get at least this picture, it's fantastic. Very well done !

hi Laurens,
this beautiful animal seems to come from ancient times and you give us a beautiful portrait of it, bravo
kind regards

nice capture of this beautiful Iguana. Excellent sharp details and a lovely composition.

Hello Laurens.
Impressive picture of this Iguana.
Crisp sharpness and beautiful colour.
Great work.

Dear Laurens,
This is a colourful beauty, and the Galapagos Land Iguanas in comparison are rater dull.

Do you remember in what sort of habitat you found it to need such a bright, brilliant "uniform"? Usually, bright orange means beware; but I have not seen any info confirming this, and the goggled animals were quite different, grey greenish...

Apropos workshop, I much rather have your original!! The leaf at the left balances the photo; without it, the left side looks "naked"!

The animal was obviously weary and watching you, as shown by the perfect focus. The background emphasises the orange.

A beautiful animal, perfectly presented.
Enjoy the rest of your week-end
Kind regards

Nice picture of the iguana in It's natural surroundings!
Sharp and clear image. Maybe I would have cropped out the two
green leaves on the left side?
This Iguana is so red/orange! The ones i've seen in Equador and Venezuela
have been much more green, great to see this color-form.
