It never fails to amaze me how cool and amazing these reptiles are and their amazing ability to adapt to their immdiate surroundings. But they don't always blend in...as in this case...I think he is advertiseing himself to potential females here- sticking out like a sore thumb in this setting! I tried to get as close as possible to him, inching in gradually not to scare him off until I found the angle, light and unclutterd bg before I took the shot. Hope you like it and thanks for your input and comments.

Hi Dilshan,
Superb colors in this close-up from a splendid low POV! Great details in the face features of this reptile with the attention mainly on the eye.
A nice diagonal composition.
Well done,

Francis Xavier
