Any chance on giving us some of the details as to how this picture was made? It's gorgeous. Did you use a black box to keep the lizards in one place? How was it lit? Did you enhance the colors in Photoshop? So many questions, so much to learn... Thanks in advance! ctodd1000@gmail.com

Thanks to everyone for all the great comments!
I setup a light tent outside, collected about seven lizards and put them all inside at once. I got several great shots; however, getting them to stay still long enough was pure luck. A lot of the pictures I ended up with were blurry images of a lizard on my camera lens. I actually did very little PS work on this photo. Obviously cropped out the background and then I just played with the contrast of each color until I found something I liked.
Thanks to everyone for all the great comments!
