Wonderfull shot, so in balance with its "deadliness" that is ready to explode into escape. Thanks,CarOze

that seems to be a
Desert Spiny Lizard (Sceloporus magister)
that you have very well captured and presented here with clear and sharp details, dynamically well composed (but maybe slightly too closely cropped below the head), in excellent naturalistic colours.
I like the red hues all over the image. They tell a lot of that extraordinary - and extraordinarily hot - place at the bottom of Grand Canyon next to Colorado river. Must have been a real adventure to be down there, and a lot of hiking after that to get up the whole way to the Canyon rim again. I also went down many years ago, an unforgettable experience.
With thanks, and best regards,

Beautiful animal you captured here, Jonas.
A nit could be the tight cropping.
Overall well done though.

I guess it's been all said about this picture! I agree there is a need of more empty space in front of the lizard. Apart from that, you captured wonderful details and colors. The diagonal composition is very appropriate to minimize the amount of surroundings captured. I am still impressed by the quality of your pictures taken at such young age. Keep doing the good work! Thanks for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

A fine presentation as though you were a professional Jonas. Fotografie ist ein Freund zu Ihnen. Üben Sie immer und Sie werden reich sein einige Tage.

Good detail, color, and exposure. I like the diagonal presentation of the subject also.. Perhaps the head's a bit tight to the corner?

Beautiful specimen. You caught him in a nice position and get him entirely.

I like your very interesting note. Who searches, that will always find. Reproduction of this beautiful animal is great as well as the diagonal composition of ht image. Details, sharpness, colours, lights and exposure are perfect. You are right. Cropping is strong a bit. It would be better to show some surroundings. When I master some type of shooting I always pre-tuning my camera on this type. Best wishes and TFS. Perfect work.

This is a fine close-up with very good details in the lizard!
A good pose has been captured, and the colours are fine...
A well composed presentation, where the reptile makes a nice diagonal!

Good shot of this lizard.
Good use of POV and DOF
Looks sharp with good color
Agree with the others the crop is a bit too close to the head, for my taste.
Great use of the diagonal space to fit him all in though!
