Panasonic DMC-FZ18       6th place, 123 points
1/100s, f3.2, ISO 100, ?, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Slight crop;converted from raw in CS3;sharpened and resized       Extra Info: This is a green anole which has chameleon-like characteristics. I was about to shoot the passion blossum in my backyard, when I spied this fellow. He froze in front of my eyes and stayed there for several minutes.
I was really excited because this was the wildest thing I have seen in our yard.

    You have a sharp eye to find this little fellow hiding among the foliage. Nice and sharp on the anole. I also like the different textures of the soft leaves and flowers against the rough bark of the tree.

    This is my #1 choice. I'm not off-put by the stem in front of the anole - indeed I think it demonstrates the very point of camouflage. I might be tempted to darken the foliage in the lower right to make it match the rest a bit more - but I wouldn't crop it out or you'd loose the lovely leaves in the lower left. Excellent use of depth-of-field.

    Love the contrast between the colours of the lizard and vegetation, and the Grey branch Very pretty shot.

    I suppose you are right as I missed the little guy entirely on first view.
