Hallo Lou,
Mooie foto vooral met die opvallende blauwe kop. Dat hij zo mooi voor je poseerde. Meestal zijn ze weg voor je ze goed gezien hebt.
Ik snap niet waarom met deze sluitertijd er niet meer delen van de hagedis scherp zijn. Eigenlijk is alleen de kop goed scherp. Vreemd. Prachtige natuurlijke kleuren en een goede compositie.

A fine capture of the striking male of this Lizard. The semi frontal POV is great with fine lighting, catchlight in the eye and good sharpness and DOF against the natural rock BG.
Nice composition to include the whole lizard.

Hi Lou,

This looks like a long lizard - I'm wondering what the size was. I love the pose with the tail curved and the feet spread out. The colors are magnificent - the blue face and the orange are marvelous. Excellent details of his face, eye and skin.

Hi Laurens

This lovely Blue-throated Keeled Lizard - Algyroides nigropunctatus is a TrekNature
first so it goes directly to my theme for RARE or SIGNIFICANT contributions to TN.
You did a fine job to capture most of the elongated reptile in sharp details as the f/18
aperture stretched the range of the DOF quite considerably. The tonal spectrum is so
very natural as can be seen by the colour of the rocks. I like the composition with the
subject curving in from the rear of the image and then straightening towards the front
and ending up with the lovely eye contact. You even managed to catch a little highlight
in its eye.

Well done and TFS.

Hello Lou!
I saw this speices only in books and internet pictures so first of all - my best ongratulations because of great luck as you saw it in the wild :)
Very ncie composition and beautiful natural colours.
TFS and have a nice evening!

Hello laurens!
beautiful lizard you captured! A male with amazing colors!
