Great shot Adrian, You've captured the shineyness of scales well, colours are subtle and clear. I like the compostion too. Informative note. Funny story about the dSLR too :-)

LOL. Sorry for laughing i just cant help recognizing myself in your note there. Reminds me of when i went out to shoot my Anemone at TL. I went out with this idea in my head brought a bag full of spray botles and reflectors and, you name it...only i forgott the tripod so i couldn't really do what i had set my mind to hehe. So i was feeling like an idiot ;)
About your photo, well it is great as usual. Sharp, good exposure. I would have loved to see the tail but then we would not see it as close. The detilas of the skin is very nice. i wonder if it is a tiny tiny bit to dark in some parts though. On the other hand, lihtning it may cause some parts to be blown out, like the tip of the nose...better leave it as it is ;)

You live and learn ;-))
Excellently sharp, clear and detailled capture of this lizard and with very good DOF, too.

Wow...so beautiful, Adrian!! looks like "Robocop-lizard" cause of it "steel look" scames ;))) Truly great capture!
When I saw the thumbnail and the caption, I thought Komodo dragon. Difficult guys to nail since they are too long to fit properly into the frame. I tried a small WS, just to see if I could tweak something from him.

Another stunner. Very nice work you did. I love the way it looks up at me. I can almost feel the scales. Great note too. Thanx for sharing.

A nice one.
Very sharp shot.
Just one thing, light is a little low.
But we can't control weather ;-).
This lizard is common in the north of France, too.

Adrian, I do like these guys.
Great shot here. Excellent sharpness to show off the animal.
P.S.: I've been having some serious problems regarding my connection. If I "disappear", be sure I'll be back to check your photos as soon as possible.
