And The Journey Begins

adjust your monitor brightness and contrast to see all gray scale levels for better view   [Sri Lankan Kangaroo Lizard/Pinum Katussa(Otocryptis weigmanni) - Female]

   Some are very curious about the intruders who come and go into their home land. Looks like she is looking at this handsome guy
   who is walking towards her ;)

   Welcome to the photo series of Sinharaja Rain Forest Through My Lens.

   PS: Please do correct me if I’m wrong while identifying these creatures since I’m novice in this subject. Your critics are highly welcome


Friend, you'd work for the National Geographic Magazine. :-)

Guess you have taken it from the ground level, which makes the angle very nice.
I usually like pictures of lizards in forests shot in the night. The dark background makes them look very attractive.

o my!what a pic!!
the expression on her face doesnt seem like she's seeing a 'handsome' guy ;-)

wow! love the pinkish tone of the pic...
seems like you've got one of those critter indexes too.. :D
And a she-lizards idea of handsomeness is a lizard like creature (sorry, but you asked for it!)

Wow, Great composition. I really like the lighting also. Super macro work.

Still stuck in the garden? :P We'll meet up soon :)

Thanks for the comment. National Geographic’s and me? lol …. Thanks for the compliment =:D

Thanks for the comment.

Personally I like to photograph in natural light. But yes, if I get a chance to snap at night ill definitely give it a try and see the results. :)

@md and silent;
Exactly as I expected! … lol

Let me give you a lil hint about the guy ;). I’m not talking about the “handsome” guy that you both are referring too. =:D hehe

No silent, I don’t have a critter index yet. But I was lucky enough to travel Sinharaja with 5 of very professional wildlife enthusiastic friends. So I got the names of these critters from them.

** Thank you both for your interesting comments … =:D

Thanks for your comment mate.

Weather was so unpredictable that day and sometimes light got changed between two clicks. It was a great experience for me to work with damp weather and taking snaps while donating blood to my leech friends. =:D

Now I’m stuck in Sinharaja ;) yeah sure will meet up soon :)

Wow.. Sinharaja!!! Can't waitta see all the pics.

And that's a cool pose for a lil lizard. Reminds me of T-Rex, an unusually slim one, in miniature. =D
