[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Egyptian Mastigure (Uromastyx aegyptia)], Leptien's Mastigure, or Egyptian dab lizard is a species of lizard from the genus Uromastyx. It is one of the largest members of the genus, with average lengths of 76 cm for males. Egyptian Mastigures can be found in Israel , Egypt, Libya and throughout the Middle East but is rarely found today due to reduction of habitat. The remainder of the population mostly inhabits the gravel plains of northern Oman and some parts of the eastern UAE where it is listed as endangered and slowly vanishing due to the impact brought on by development.

Hello Eyal
Impressive lizard and beautiful photo with excellent composition and great sharpness.

Hi Eyal,
How are you?
Very strange lizard which is well camouflaged in his environment.
If the photo was mine I'd put the lizard in the more horizontal line and cut a little bit of the BG to value the POV.
But you did a great job! Nice sharpness !
Lovely w-end,
