Wow, that one couple that doesn't look very happy to me. These photos look really good as they are very sharp and the colors look really nice as well. I also like the lighting in the photo as it is very even, thanks for sharing these great looking shots.

Lizard sex? That's a new one. I really like these, but I think your DOF might be a little too narrow on the second one especially since the bottom looks more like there's something wrong with it than a nice out of focus effect. It's not as much of a problem in the first one, because of your angle on it.

Thank you! The sharpeness and colours are all PP. And I agree with you. The act of sex was violent. I tought they were fighting but I saw in youtube it was the way they mate.

Many thanks! The DOF was the wider I could, because they were moving quick like in a fight. So I need a high shutter speed. But i like the DOF effect because it marks the male bite, that was very impressive.

Wow! Sharp pictures of reptilian mating each other.
The lizard skin, IMO, potrays an array of colours which enhance the picture.
Thank you for sharing, juan.

Cheers.

He, he. I think the female one would say that a bit of kindness will be great.

Itīs about 3/4 of the original size. I shot with the Pentax 55-300, so i couldnīt get closer to them.
