When I visited Earnley Butterflies Birds and Beasts in West Sussex, my main interest was the butterflies, but it offered far more than that to the visitor. This iguana was in the reptile house, behind glass, and it was quite dark in there. I wasn't prepared for this, but did my best, without a tripod. What bothered me most were all the dirty hand prints on the glass, at child level. It took a bit of work to remove them from the image, but I think it was worth the effort. Next time, I'll take some Windolene and a duster! That will save me a lot of work.

Superb captures, Pamela, and under very difficult circumsstances, too. You've captured some excellent detail in this handsome fella. Carol
This place must be relatively new, it didn't exist when I lived in West Sussex Sad

Composition wise I like no.3 best, but the detail on no1 is stunning. Looking on screen there is no evidence of glass. First class photography for those who like reptiles! Lets see some butterflies.

You will know I like dirty windows Pamela,but in this case,not so. Good job off removing the dirty stains from the glass.
But it is not so easy removing dirty,grotty kids !!
Excellent close ups.

Beautiful capture with amazing detail in such difficult circumstances.
About the museum; it does offer some good photographic opportunities, but it totally lacks in aesthetic coherence; the parts just don't make a whole.. After only a short time most of the colourful panels needed to be replaced and the thing started leaking because some of it is below the level of the canal. Add to that the totally elitist management that refuses to display work of one of the world's best realist painters that lives only 20 km away because he's not "innovative", and you have a recipe for local resentment. The museum is for the ego of the achitect and the management in the first place. Art comes a lot further down the line.
Best regards,
Rende

I'd never thought of having Windolene in my camera bag...
V1 seems to capture best the smug, complacent vanity with an evil streak that I see. I'm coming over anthropomorphic, time for the tablets.

I'm always amazed by your images' colour,this time I'm astonished by your handheld skills...fantastic clarity,superb detail,excellent colour.
Iguanns always make me laugh...it seems that they wouldn't care anything in the world,they always slowly move in their own half sleeping wayGrin...
It seems that the "keeper" did a wonderful job,the glass was spotless, actually I couldn't believe that they were taken through the glass...I really admire your attitude.You are a complete perfectionist.

Pamela this is soooooo good! Is Earnley the place that is going to wrack and ruin? If so, I went there last July during that week when we had monsoons all week! The water was pouring in and the power was off! Great afternoon though - I loved it - especially that 1960's tea room.

But getting back to the matter in hand, this image is great - we could not see this wonderful creature when we were there and if we had I would never have managed a capture like this. The detail and light is supreme. Beautiful captures of a very beautiful animal - they are just amazing aren't they.
