@Linerberry: Isn't that great? If that branch hadn't been in the way, it would have been doubly terrific, but I don't think he'd have put up with the human moving too close. Anoles can be very friendly once they get to know you, but this one was a stranger.
The cherub has the lizards skin

@grouser: That cherub has kind of a peaceful, "Go ahead and climb all over me, if you'd like" look, doesn't he? Thanks, Grousikins.
this is really a nice picture. You framed it quite well although the branch going across is a little bit of a distraction. But you have a very nice texture here and that little lizard adds to the picture. Perhaps you should consider posting your image to the critique forum, I bet you'll get a lot of good pointers and advise if you're interested in this kind of stuff, of course (but it could be fun !!)

@Roman: Yep, that branch is annoying. I was afraid he'd run off if I tried to move it, though, so I opted to get the photo with a distraction in the middle. I just loved the peaceful look on that little cherub's face combined with the little anole running around on his shoulder. I might join the critique forum, sometime, but I'm just dropping in quickly, when I can, at the moment. My book review commitments are a little overwhelming. I'm going to try very hard to start saying no to those free books. It's not easy when you're a book addict!!!
I love that sharp detail and vivid color. Nice composition.

@Ana Lúcia: Thank you!
The lizard is almost secondary to the way you captured the texture on the figure... very nice.

@Earnest: Thanks, Earnest. That's one of my favorite things about the photo, too. I love the texture and the expression on the face of that cupid. :)
