Good Morning! Another very cooperative anole from my backyard. I've always known how incredibly fragile these little guys are but seeing the translucency of his front leg with the backlighting going thru it, sure brought home that fact.

You certainly deserve an award of excellence with this image Val, so perfectly executed as far as sharpness, details, dof, composition and colors. So impressive that you've been able to make him stay put. I'm sure we'll see this again. Another favorite from your impressive gallery! :)

OMG, a marvelous macro of this little guy, Val! At least I think he is little (I have never actually seen one). But I'm sure they run quickly so it's pretty amazing that you were able to get this to sit still and pose for you! Wonderful colors and detail. Hope you are doing well!
