Lizard Up Close by rubys polaroid

Reptile Close Up

Macro shots is this weekend’s theme, Macro in photography denotes nice big close-ups of itsy-bitsy things. The little details our human eyes might never see are exposed by artificial lens.
I would typically do a flower muse but not today. I went in the search of the weird and got pretty cool shots šŸ˜€ , this lizard just finished a little battle and was resting when i stumbled on him. My once in an Orange Moon chance to get cool shots of these fast critters.
Here’s a link to the WPC Post to see more cool entries – CLOSE- UP.
Interestingly enough i have a whole section for Dragonflies, especially colourful like in their post. You can check them out here
DRAGONFLIES.
