Yes, this photograph was taken "in the wild" in western Costa Rica in late November 2011.

Goodness! Seems an entire club of photographers commented on this one. The laiman says: That lizard wears its frock of camouflage serenely, unperturbed by the adoring human eyes.

Great Capture. Fact that this lizard is ready to spring into action separates this photo from the average.

Kris from Beverly Hills, MI about 7years ago said:
Composition is artful and informative. Artist has captured texture (lizards skin). Enjoy that natures vivid colors and lizards habitat are also communicated.

The clarity of the picture is stunning. The yellow of the eye and the colors of the lizard's skin pop. Well done!
