  1. I love this. Apart from birds, reptiles are my favorite creatures.
    (but, being odd that I am, I also love insects)

  6. Faye - My pleasure, I like your blog! thanks for the nice words.

    SquirrelQueen - Thanks to you! It was a challenge because there was frozen mist in the air, every once in a while I got to take a shot or two.

  11. I like Liz. Can she come over over for tea and crickets?

  13. I am also quite fascinated by reptiles. They are definitely a throw back to the dinosaur age. I love how they can change color and all their scales. It is almost like their suit of armor...but much cooler.

  14. Looks like my Aunt Gert before she moisturized (God rest her soul).

  15. Amazing photograph Patrick. I think I could see you being reflected in the eye of the lizard when I enlarged the photograph.

  16. What do the cats think of your pet lizard?

  17. Great colors and I like how the background is not as sharp as the reptiles.

  18. Georgina - he sure wasn't afraid of me!

    BB - oh that's a funny one! Clever girl...

    Sarah - I agree. the closer you get the better it looks

    DrSoosie - I totally agree. I also get the same feeling from birds.

    Jesse - I thought the same thing!

    Costaas - I wondered if anybody would notice the reflection...

    Alex - If it was at my house, I'm afraid my cats would have fought over which one got to eat it...

    Katherine - Thanks! Nature has a nice way of coloring things...

    Warren - It's supposed to be a "Green Gecko," but I'm not sure

  19. I enlarged it and came face to face with a large eye. Beautiful lizard though.

  20. Reptiles scare the hell out of me! And they're usually scaredy-cat kind of creatures (well, some of them). I'm surprised this one didn't take off before you had a chance to snap your photo. Nice one!

  26. I know I've already commented on this one but I still love it. Liz is a real beauty. Is that her hubby Richard?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I too first noticed your can see the reflection of you taking the picture in her eye! That is too badass...great shot. I can't get stuffed animals to hold that still :)

  28. Very cool pic, but I have a phobia of lizards and they scare me! Irrational, I know, but real. :)

  29. Even better the second time
    around... the big guy looks
    like he could handle anything
    or anyone in his way.

  32. Clarissa - It's a beauty all right!

    Biana - Thanks! I agree! Those colors are amazing...
