Mountain Horned Dragon Lizard.

I think this is what it is called. I stumbled upon it this morning.

I like the first image. Colors are wonderful and the lizard is cooperating… A vertical (portrait) shot would also work here. I'm less thrilled by the second one, mostly due to the reduced depth of field.

I think the first one is good technique. If it is a "biology photo of a specie" - then tighten the framing. If it is more than that, Consider slightly more dynamic framing.

I rather like the second, for just that reason.

I managed just one shot of the 1st photo from a distance. It ran away when I got closer. I cropped the photo a bit. Too much cropping would degrade the quality.

I returned half an hour later and found the lizard on a different branch. This is the best I could get as there were branches obstructing my view.

Thank you all for your feedback.
