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 😀 , 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

Weird but True Lizard Facts

Some lizards cry bloody tears. TRUE.
Texas Horned Lizards, also called Horned Toads, defend themselves by puffing up and ejecting a small amount of blood from the inner corner of each eye to confuse predators.

Collared Lizards run on their hind legs like T-Rex. TRUE.
When startled, they rear up and run on two legs.

Lizards are found everywhere on earth except the Arctic and the Antarctic.

The Stare

A observant lizard is the muse for today’s Monochrome Tuesday. Questions, questions and more questions hover in his pitch black eyes.

Man has always asked do animals have souls or is it our fearful souls reflected in their eyes.

colourful minimalism

I’m an avid lover of all things minimalist, from architecture (my field) to photo/art. They say the Haiku is the epitome of minimalists poetry. Three lines to say all and nothing. Not an easy feat by any means.
This is my try at a minimalist photo. I hope it stays true to the art form I am trying to mimic.
