    Hey guys! I have been slow and shy about posting my work, but here it is. I just got a new macro lens. Any and all suggestions and comments will be greatly appreciated.

    The specs: 100ISO 100mm f2.8 @ 1/200sec.

    Sometimes I'm a little shy about showing my lizard, too.

    Good job, especially in the second one, of getting the detail of the scales, and the shades of colour by its eye.

    Thanks! I know the shot is screaming for more color but this guy changes with his background.

    I appreciate your words.

    The second one is very cool. Nice detail. You should try shooting him/her against a more colorful background. Maybe down at the beach, or with a sunset in the distance, or posing with a beautiful lizard of the opposite sex.

    You can tell by how the first lizard reacts.

    Thanks. I need a more cooperative subject. I thought I was going to have to nail this guy to the deck rail to get these shots. I declined concluding that it would somehow subtract from the overall composition. But I wanted to!:lol:

    Would be like the dead parrot skit. Everyone looking at the shot for critique would be going "Yeah, the detail is really nice and the exposure is pretty spot on...the only thing I don't really care for is the nail through it's abdomen..."
