What an outstanding capture!! I bet the mouth is watering on that splendid dragon, one more move and the Cricket will be gone! Excellent timing with all in focus and sharp details. The colours are beautiful too. A masterpiece!!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

nice moment captured, the cricket has opted for a very risky ride which may cost life, the dragon is waiting for the right opportunity, well seen and captured,
tfs & regards

This one should get everyones attention. It is an editorial sot as well as a nature shot. Dual purpose, perfect timing. Great subjects to work with. Amazing capture. Great fun Joey!
Joe, what a funny shot!. You really have a good reflex and an eye to capture such an extra ordinary moment. I just loved the way the dragon is eying the cricket. great details, sharpness, details and colours. To follow your suit all + and no -. :-)
Good notes too, Joe. I quite agree with you that they are harmless, except to the ears...
What a cool shot Joe!
This looks hilarious!
I bet you put that cricket there though,didn't you?
It is a fantastic image anyway.
Excellent exposure,colour and detail.
Very nice work.

Hello Joe !
Well, that's quite an unusual picture ! Once I have seen agrasshopper on a snake's head, in a zoo, but Ididn't get any picture - you were better than me ! :-) The Dragon really looks angry with the little insect, it's funny to look at. Excellent details, beautiful composition and POV. Very well done !

What a unique moment. And a unique photo. The colours and light are amazing. Just like the pose of the Dragon with his eyes upwards. Very good DOF and outstanding sharpness. Beautiful BG.

Hasta mi mujer que no suele ver fotografía me ha dicho que era estupenda :-)
El ojo del reptil es insuperable . Me encantan
las tonalidades del conjunto y por supuesto la
originalidad de la toma.

LOL very cute photo. I enjoyed reading your bio and your story on how you got into photography. You are doing great with that S3. The dragon looks very good with great details and beautiful warm light. The Bokeh is beautiful. Great shot and keep shooting.

Definitely a funny one:-)
!!!!! fantastic !!!! you're a master !! and your pics are always full of details and colours,very very good work,have a nice day,Luciano
Ha-ha-ha. Well, that is one way of making sure you don't become lunch. It is certain to make any ferocious dragon go "squint eyed" and pull his beard out in utter frustration. Seems like little "Jiminy Cricket" is having a bit of an identity crisis. Apparently he thinks he is some kind of ultra-modern type of head gear fashioned to make all the eyebrows lift.
A lovely humorous capture that ought to remedy the stress levels of many onlookers by means of a good old deep bellied giggle. Anyway, it did move mine (not the stress, but the belly).
The warm colours and nice sharp details really show off this fine specimen of a Bearded Dragon. The out of focus BG enhances the reptile and the insect and make it stand out in the shot while the close-crop draws the attention and makes the eyes focus on the subjects.
Well spotted and TFS.
