Very nice, Raghu. The first especially. I love reptiles. What kind is this?

Robert, Clint and Sarah: Thanks for looking and posting your comments. I am glad you all like this.

I knew this is a common garden lizard, but I didn't know which family. I picked up this info on the internet:

"The Oriental Garden Lizard, Eastern Garden Lizard or Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) is an agamid lizard found widely distributed in Asia. It has also been introduced in many other parts of the world.

It is an insectivore and the male gets a bright red throat in the breeding season leading to a common incorrect name of Bloodsucker."

I have the itching sensation to name the lizard 'Admiral Ackbar', for some odd reason.

But the first shot is quite splendid, Raghu! Wonderful job of capturing a somewhat fleeting moment!
