Very good shot! Depth of field is just where you want it, the sharpness is impressive and the lizard looks like it is posing for you!

What kind of lens was used and what was your shooting distance?

In Florida, where I used to live, there were lizards everywhere! Some were so used to people that you could walk right up to within a couple of feet and they would just look at you. Others would run if you got closer than ten feet.

Hi Abhi,

This is a nice shot. The composition is generally good, with the lizard's head nicely off centre, the exposure is spot on, and the lizard is sharp, with good use of DOF . There are two problems I find with the photo:

1. You've just cut off a tiny bit of the lizard's back right claw (left hand side of the photo) and that is distracting.

2. The bright green leaf on the right hand side of the photo near the lizard's head distracts from your main subject. Maybe see if you could tone that down in PS a little bit?

Best,

-Ben

Hi, Abhi.
Ben seems to have concluded whatever I would suggest as criticism. Anyway, still I'd like to add that this lizard stands so pretty that I could keep it home at large :-)
