Now I like it. We now everything :-) from a very good note. Very good treknature shot. I think that it is rather an educational presentation. I think that you could improve the composition by cropping it with the lizard in right down corner.
POV is interesting but it would be nice to see these interesting animal from upper POV.

I had never heard of this species. It is good to see that you captured a picture of this rare and endangered species.Just like Krzysztof mentioned this is a very educational image.
Te felicit pentru toate fotografiile publicate si multa bafta in continuare!
Numai bine, Oana
I have to say that it was a big surprise for me to see this creature here on TN. It is a really rare species so here are my best congratulation because of this shot! and for the educational note too.
Really for me it looks a little like dragon from Comodo (especially the lizard's head is similar) ;>
TFS and best greetings,
PS. In Polish the name of this lizard is: stepniarka roznobarwna or stepniarka drobloluska :>
