[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This shot was taken at Stuttgart Wilhelma Zoo/Botanical garden.

Wilhelma is the most popular place for a leisure-time visit in Baden-Württemberg's capital city. Every year more than 2 million visitors come to the park from Stuttgart itself, from Baden-Württemberg and from the rest of Germany, as well as from neighbouring European countries. A visit is always worthwhile.

Wspaniałe kolory i ostrość, wyśmienity POV i DOF. Gratuluję.

Hi Sochirca well captured. Sharp focus on his face & eyes. Works very well with black BG. Well framed too. TFS - Regards - Adil.

I like this. Especially nice job with the lighting. And everything is good and sharp. Leg outside the frame is cute. Gary

Wow Dan, this photo looks unreal! :-) It is almost 3d! I like it a lot. I am adding it to my favorites. TFS!

Bonjour Dan, great shot , I like the position of the leg outside the frame and the gorgeous green color. Perfect composition, Didier.

Hi Sochira,
What a wonderful photo. Especially the light in it is great. I like how its head is in the full light while the rest of its body is slightly more shaded. The details and DOF are also of a excellent quality. I like the creative touch of the framing with the one leg hanging over it.

Hi Sochirca,

Beautiful photograph, the light on the reptile in a darker background has given a dramatic effect.
I loved the framing of the photograph with the feet coming out of the frame.

les couleurs sont biens rendues et le sujet est trés net, j'aime l'effet avec le cadre.

Excellent shot. Good framing, composition and colours. I love the way the lizard is resting! Thanks for sharing.
