I think this IS a Ghekko but if I am wrong please feel free to correct me, the pic was taken at the Butterfly Fm in Stratford last year and the lighting was difficult he is under a ray lamp and you can if you have time see the original in V2 - many thanks for all c/c's on yesterdays upload always grateful for your time and appreciate your input, special thanks to Netta for awarding the picture with her UA gratefully received thankyou

Karen says Iguana and I think maybe right but Albert says Bearded DragonSmile not sure about this any more offerings before I change the name??? thanks one and all

V3 is a heavier crop of the original following Lonely_Oryx suggestion thankyou John I can see this is better - why didnt I spot the obviousSad

A gorgeous capture - doesn't it blend in to its surroundings when in black and white!

I don't think it is a Gecko ~ possibly a Bearded Dragon?

Good in b&w - it conveys patterns, textures, and gets rid of that distracting background colour.

Two super images Ann. I really do prefer V2 however. The lovely gentle colour changes are amazing and I think they give more life to the beast.GrinGrinGrinWinkWink

Very good crisp capture of this reptile (there's your IDWinkWink) and it's the colour version that pings with me, Ann.

As said Ann, a great shot and the mono is showing the lovely details so well
but has to be the colour for me as a rather magnificent creature

I'd guess he was an Iguana...but whatever, it's a super shot, Ann, and though I go for the colour version, it's a very fine bit of mono work, and think he and you deserve my UA...Smile

The colour versions have far greater impact IMHO, the detail, colours and textures in his scaly skin are terrific in v2 and v3
