[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Nearly stepped on this fello as I was with my family walking through Ben Shemen forest near Modiin.He even allowed us to gently pick him up and my youngest was well happy to hold him in her hands.

What amazed me the most was the texture of his skin.

He was then returned to roam the grass we had so rudely him removed from - see workshop.

A delightful portrait of a chamaeleon David, you are quite succesful with this close-up, but you did not need a 1/500 sec. exp. for it, a slower shutter with a closer aperture (e.g. f/8 or 11) would result in a deeper DOF and more of the chamaeleon in focus. TFS.

Hello David, this lizard looks like jewels, the turquoises used by Native People for necklaces. What a great macro shot this is, with beautiful light and amazing details, on perfect background. Thank you!
