Day 158

Hey People!

Yesterday we went out of the city, celebrating my cousin’s birthday, that’s why I wasn’t able to blog.

It was a nice day, with nice food and great company.

I took about 80 photos of people, food, some small birds, but this one was my favorite; the silhouette of a small wall lizard.

Some facts about lizards:

Most lizards have movable eyelids and can blink.

Lizard skin is covered with scales or plates that are made of keratin, which is the same material as human fingernails are made of.

The wall lizards are prey for birds, snakes, cats and large insects; and are predators for all kinds of insects.

They can lose their tail in order to scape and distract a predator; the tail will grow back but shorter, slimmer and with a different color.

Lizards smell with their tongue; and they shed their skin.

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF Zoom 70-300; 200 mm, ISO 800; f/5,6 ; 1/500 s.



Ayer estuvimos fuera de la ciudad celebrando el cumpleaños de mi primo, fue una fiesta sorpresa, llena de buena comida,  excelente compañía.

Tomé casi 80 fotos de gente, comida, animales, algunos pájaros, pero ésta fue mi preferida, la silueta de una lagartija.

Algunos datos sobre las lagartijas:

La mayoría de lagartijas tienen párpados que se mueven y pueden parpadear.

La piel de las lagartijas está cubierta de escamas, que están hechas de keratina, el mismo material del que están hechas las uñas del ser humano.

Las lagartijas son presas de  pájaros, gatos, culebras e insectos largos, y sonpredadores de todo tipo de insectos.

Pueden soltar su cola para escapar o distraer a un depredador; su cola volverá a crecer otra vez pero más corta, más delgada, con un color diferente y sin hueso.

Las lagartijas huelen con su lengua; y mudan su piel.

Datos de la foto: Nikon D5000 ; Lente: Nikkor AF Zoom 70-300; 200 mm, ISO 800; f/5,6 ; 1/500 s.

  1. Great capture….I would suggest one compositional adjustment….crop the highlight out at the top of the image…then your eye will stay with the lizard framed in that light patch

  2. Yes. I like the silhouette too. Of course, I like all kinds of silhouettes. But, normally I see the lizard usually in full color. I like this.
