    Behind glass is tough…and to get such a fab image…wow!! I love these lizards..incredibly prehistoric!!!
    Huge hugs !!

  • Thanks Polly! He had just shed his skin and there were bits of the old still clinging to him in spots. LOL
    I look for a spot on the glass with fewer little handprints and put my lens right up on the glass.

    Very well done! He looks a little scary in this but I’m sure he is harmless…he could be nine feet long for all I know…lol

  • Thanks Kathi. I’m not sure what kind he is. His body was 12 – 18" not including his tail. His counterpart is in the background – a gila monster lizard.
