This is a Bearded Dragon that a friend caught on his property. He posed beautifully for a couple of hours. I released him back to the same location after the shoot.

What a wonderful model! What a beautiful job (but I said that before) *grin* . You did some really good setups with him. Thanks for sharing them. I enjoyed them all.

My pick for the Blue. Great focus, setup, lighting, and "pose"? That is one well trained Godzilla you have there ;O) Well done... see you on the front page. Bumping to a 9.

Excellent shot! Very well composed, I like the white background, and how did you ever get whatever kind of lizard that is to pose for you?

Really cute idea. I'll bet this was a challenge to shoot! I'm not sure if I am crazy about the white background and wonder what it would have looked like with a less stark background. The colors seem a bit dull but that could also be my monitor. All in all an excellent image and I rated it very high!

This is a very creative take on the topic. It's full of careful planning and thought... I think however, a tighter crop would have helped you. I must admit to not "seeing" what I was looking at on first viewing - I could see the shoe, but then I didn't at first make out the little horny devil ... thought perhaps it was a twisted bit of brown stocking or something: and then I saw him! Anyway, just to give you an idea of what I was seeing and what my initial reaction was. Perhaps a tighter crop and a warmer light to pull the eye in?

Now there’s something you don’t see every day…Great capture I hope it doesn’t get voted down as DNMC.

Cute stock shot, well done and certainly fits the subject well. I'm sure this will do well in here because it's the type of shot that does do well. *smile*

Brilliantly photographed and a wonderful idea. Great setup. Lighting is wonderful. I wish the animal's head were posed differently, but I understand how difficult it is to speak 'lizzard' so he probably didnt' understand what you were asking him to do. 9

Hope you washed your family jewels after the photo shoot! Yuck! Perfect use of white background and wow, great pose.

For about five seconds I was staring at this photo wondering what is wrong with that weird crumpled up stocking on top of the shoe? What does the title mean? Now I understand I need my eyes checked. Great photo.
