Great timing! I'm surprised you used the one-shot mode and could get this effect.
Thanks for sharing.

nice capture of th ereptile, liked the way its looking to the camera, good details , the scales of the skin is visible clearly,
tfs & regards
this is definately a Moniter Lizard... I'm not sure of the specific I.D. though, sorry!
This is a great find, it must have been pretty big!
+++ Perfect timing to capture that long tongue and with excellent sharpness aswell.
Great DOF and a decent BG.
I love the POV and composition.
Natural colours aswell.
--- Nothing :D
YES!!! I was so hoping for something like this and here it is! A huge lizard from your wonderful quest from Africa! How cool!
Now i'm not an expert on monitor lizards...especially if they from a different continent, but i've done some searching and i think this might be the White-throated monitor or Varanus albigularis.
Here you may find a site about that species and comparing the characters i'd say they look rather alike.
Back now to your outstanding shot :)
What a perfect timing!!! Catching that huge vividly colored tongue flicking like that was absolutely brilliant! I'm wondering what interesting preys was see sniffing around for :)
Terrific shot, my friend, presenting this monitor with some great sharp details and also lovely attention towards that cool texture of his.
...I can't help it...i'm so excited to see such creatures too from Africa! (not only lions and elephants...not that they aren't beautiful, but it's the only thing people take pictures of there).
A very big TFS

Er zijn altijd mensen en blijkbaar dus ook dieren die hun tong uit moeten steken op de foto en deze is daar dus ook een van.
Prachtig vastgelegd met fantastisch licht en schaduw.
Scherpte, details etc zoals altijd perfect.

Splendid shot of this great lizard!
Excellent nuance and details.
Very interesting POV.
I certainly do not know what it is but I do know the portrait of it is superb.
When do you get the camera back?

Just appreciating this wonderful shot from you. I am on a tour and internet connection comes at a premium here, hence doing a short job. Sorry.

Great 3D looking image; it's looking right at me. For a moment I thought that it would "jump" right out from the screen on to my desk. SO VERY REAL.
GREAT GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY. One of the BEST on TN.
Excellent clarity for such a low ISO.
Hope someday I can "match" this one.
Best regards, Mario from Calgary, Canada.
