    That is a fine first effort! The eye is in sharp focus which is very important when shooting animals (or humans). I took the liberty of editing your shot to bring out its potential. I increased the contrast a bit, added a bit of saturation, and sharpened the image. Finally, I cropped it so that the subject becomes more prominent. These are small edits you can do that will help your future images. The software that comes with your D5000 will allow you to do this. Hope you find this helpful!

    Nice for a first try. Bearded dragons are a good subject to play around with some settings on the camera!
