Trying to hide but too successfully with you prowling around with your lens, Lillian:
Lovely shot as it peers round the trunk and as you say those eyes are something else.
Beautiful detail and colours.

Love it Lillian a big Ah factor here for this delightful lizard.

I am a bit worried about Nathan! (NDODS) I know he has not been well and I see he has been removed from the site, does any one know if he is all right! if you do know please put our minds at rest.

Thank You everyone, and to Val, David, and Eric for your UA's and to David for the GEA and so pleased
The F16 was what I was instructed to use due to the small Gecko here and had to stand back from him most of the time
this had to be the hardest of all the macro creatures I photographed.Smile
