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

Pat Tillett said...

I like how they look like little Dino's...

Kimberly said...

AMAZING! I love the colors!!

Pat Tillett said...

totally natural. I don't even know how to describe that color of green.

faye said...

Hi..

Thanks for stopping and "tagging along"
on my little blog....

Your photos just blew me away....
I'll be baaack.

SquirrelQueen said...

Fantastic shot Pat, the detail is excellent.

Pat Tillett said...

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.

Carly said...

Wow, I love the colors and clarity of this shot!

Pat Tillett said...

Carly, I've never seen that shade of green before!

Oz Girl said...

Pat, what brilliant greens and oh the detail in his scales and eye! Great shot.

Pat Tillett said...

thanks! Oz Girl,
this guy let me walk right up on him. The only thing he didn't do was say "cheese!"

Such a proud looking lizard! - G

Bossy Betty said...

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

Sarah said...

Looks like mosaic artwork. Very cool.

DrSoosie said...

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.

Copyboy said...

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

Naturedigital said...

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

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

What do the cats think of your pet lizard?

Katherine Aucoin said...

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

Warren Zoell said...

What kind of lizard is it?

Pat Tillett said...

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

Clarissa Draper said...

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

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!

Biana said...

Really cool shot, Pat. The colors are fantastic!

Marlene said...

WOW!!! Such a great shot - and I LOVE these critters!

Nat said...

I do love the names you give your pets :-)
Fantastic pic!

Sam Liu said...

Ah! Those eyes! And such colour. Wonderful, wonderful photograph, Pat.

The Retired One said...

He is GORGEOUS!!!!! Ohhhh, and the texture is fabulous too!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Awesome!

Jenny said...

Awwww, she's cute!

SquirrelQueen said...

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

Chuck said...

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 :)

Marguerite said...

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

faye said...

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

Talli Roland said...

Love the shot, Pat! I love how they loom like little dinos, too.

Sophia (my visual illusions) said...

Wauwww, great colours!!

dot said...

Fantastic shot! I almost didn't notice the second one in the picture.

Pat Tillett said...

Clarissa - It's a beauty all right!

Nevine - It wasn't intimidated by me in the slightest. I just looked to my right and there are two lizards on the side of the fence warming up in the sun. Thanks!

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

Marlene - thanks my friend!

Nat - It's a good thing this one isn't mine, our cats are pretty smart, and would find a way....

Sam - Thanks Sam, I appreciate it.

Joan - He is a pretty one!

Ms A - Thanks! Nice to see your name pop up!

Jenny - I thought it was kinda cute myself.

SQ - LOL...that's funny!

Chuck - I think I'm going to blow it up and crop it so the reflection stands out.

Marguerite - There are so many of them around here, that even the little kids like them.

faye - Thanks Again!

Talli - I always think of dinos when I see them.

Sophia - Thanks, they are pretty.

dot - Thanks, nice of him to pose for me

Andrea said...

Never thought I'd say "What a pretty lizard"...but "What a pretty lizard!"

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

It's really hard to believe those colors are totally natural. Great, great shot.

Amazing shot! I never dreamed I would call these guys beautiful...but they are!

tapirgal said...

This is a GREAT reptile photo. I love the detail and the way the colors blend in the foreground and back.
