Fabulous DOF, the iguana details are very clear, the vivid colors are great in this monochromatic shot. I like it a lot.

WOW, Donna - what a WONDERFUL capture this is of Allison playing in the tall grass!! The details, textures, lighting, colours, depth of vield, low point of view AND composition here are all EXCEPTIONAL!! :o) I've just got one question for you and Beckie - doesn't Allison try to run away when she's outdoors?!! ;o)

Aww...What a cutie! I actually had one in my yard down in Georgia, it was an escaped pet of the neighbors. He went up a tree and eventually got away. :(

Thanks for all of your super comments on this portrait of Allison. I really appreciate ALL of them very much. I take her outside almost every day so that she can sun herself. She is a vegitarian, she helps me with the weeds!!! I let her run free and but I have to keep an eye on her.
Take care!!

Allison look well these days. I think green is her color, Donna. Goes well with her eyes.

Thank you Lisa and Alana!

Allison is our pet iguana. She is very predictable, so I know her likes and dislikes!!!
