You have quick eyes, my friend. He certainly blends into his environment, does he not? Nice close up and the POV is wonderful. I'm not sure I'd get that close... The notes really bring this home for me - and by the way, I've missed you. :)

Great closeup Angelina,
Very sharp and with nice details. Good colours and shown in natural habitat.
This little guy reminds me of the ones Rosie and I saw during our trip out west a few years ago. They had blue bellies and they were extremely fast.
I remember a few that I did manage to get close to seemed to be doing push-ups with their front legs. I'm not sure what this behavior was for, but I remember it distinctively. TFS.

Amazing all the different creatures you have down there. This is really good that for how bad he did not want to pose, you managed a nice low down POV.
Must have had to be fast.
Good on you Angelina.
Enjoy your week:)

Not a typical picture from you! Wonderful shot of this Whiptail with excellent details of his face and skin patterns. You did well catching him. Just got back from Colorado where I saw green and blue water after a long time.

Angy, this guy scared me on first sight and then i read your notes and realised how "big" they are...and wow, they seem to really move quick but you still manages a good cpature with good details and in great light.
Very well done.'TFS & cheers

What a cute little fellow!
The low point of view works well for this fine portrait, placing the viewer in an eye-to-eye position...
I see you need 1/500 sec to freeze this little speeder, hehehe!
