    Thanks for the comments.
Raghu/ Yes he really was this green, although it's probably emphasized a bit by the lighting in the cage. This was taken at the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin. Unfortunately I've mislaid my shot notes for this particular set of shots, so I can't tell you exactly what he is. Some sort of large Iguana I think. If I remember correctly, he was about the size of the one on this book cover.

    Fantastic! Is it the lighting or is he naturally green there? Anyway, my top marks!

    Excellent capture. Love the black background as it makes this little lizard show up so much better.

    Great natural setting for this capture.
Colors are vibrant and alive and the sharpness is vivid.
One of my favorites.
