[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Uromastyx is a genus of lizard whose members are better-known as Spiny-tailed lizards, uros, mastigures, or dabb lizards. Uromastyx are primarily herbivorous, but occasionally eat insects, especially when young. They spend most of their waking hours basking in the sun, hiding in underground chambers at daytime or when danger appears. They tend to establish themselves in hilly, rocky areas with good shelter and accessible vegetation.

Hi Anil,
A fantastic photo of these Spiny-tailed Lizards. But I think the sharpness is somewhat missing. I tried a workshop. Hope you will like. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Namastay Anil,

Fantastic and lovely capture of these pretty babies and their parent in lovely and harmonic poses, you've presented them really well.
TFS and have a nice day!

Hello Anil,
A very discreet picture on the thumbnail, but very interesting! What an amazing shape this lizard has. And so cute to see it with two babies with the same attitude. The WS shows the subject a little bit better with some cropping and some more contrast.
Kind regards

Hi Anil,
This is an excellent shot with very nice colors, sharpness, and details. Well done & TFS.
