Mooi shot van deze Lizard Annick
leuke compo en een prachtige dedication
I think this is a White-Throated Savanna Moniter but I could quite easily be mistaken!
Here's the scientific info:
COMMON NAME: white-throated monitor, white-throated savanna monitor, cape monitor
GENUS SPECIES: Varanus (monitor lizard) exanthematicus albigularis (white throated)
I like how this guy is cautiously looking over the wood.
Brilliant Rule-of-Thirds composition and a decent POV.
Great dedication to Bayram.

Nice picture. This lizard has beautiful skin. Looks like it is smiling. Perfect exposure and well seen image.

Wowwww... hello my dear friend Annick :-)
This is really big surprise for me. Thank you very much for your nice compliments and a lot for this superb natural capture of this beautiful monitor (family Varanidae) showing its beautiful colour-pattern and its long neck. It resembles a young Varanus griseus but I have to be honest that I have not got enough information of the African varanids my friend. May be Joe is right on this subject. TFS and also indebted to you for this pleasant dedication for me! I'm taking this in to my favorites!
Thank you very very much:-)

A fine and eager looking varanid lizard peeking from behind a piece of dead log surprisingly similar to the now famous "woodwork" Bayram usually utilizes in some of his fine herpetological captures Annick, a fine capture of a young individual my friend, I can feel Bayram's pleasure in receiving this dedication from you, TFS and cheers my friend,

A beautiful dedication! As usual an excellent shot. And it's the composition I liked most in the picture. Bit different from your usual posts.:)
Thanks for the share,

Annick nice shot but I think you should have focussed more on the lizard. More space for the non subject (my personal opinion). Ganesh

A cool capture of this lizard as it pops it's head up for a peek.What didn't you see on this trip...the list would be shorter.
Excellent focus and sharpness.
