Default Small Garden Lizard

Hi ,

Just got my gear and was on search for a good subject to capture.
it was overcast and rainy days out in Mumbai. Came across small tree which was fell due to heavy showers and wind and it had foliage on it, saw a small lizard which was size of pinkie finger.

it was standing still looking at me!!!
having 100mm Macro lens I had to cover the distance for closeup shot. Lizard was waiting to get clicked

Do review this and comment on this capture.

Regards,
Abhi

Happy Clicking!!!

Colors and composition is nice - did you crop?

I think it would make a nice desktop background or even a picture to hang on a quiet place.

Thanks for sharing,
Th.

Beautiful interplay of the lizard's colors and textures with the colors and textures of the background. Your choice of narrow DOF made it all work. But now that I've noticed what looks like an oil gusher coming out of the lizard's forehead I can't unsee it.
