I managed to get this shot on a "nightwalk in the rainforest". I'm hoping to improve on this and am currently practicing when ever weather permits.

Amazing photo! I would like to know what settings/equipment you used? I'm guessing flash? Good luck improving, it'll be tough!

Is that a camelion?

i m guessing u used the in built flash here? because the lightning isnt that great, you hit him at quite a bad angel (from below) for my taste, if u would have had a latter the lightining would have been better i would personaly have blurred the backgroung/leaves in from of the images to focs more on the lill lizard (looks enourmus tho) because as he is trying to camuflage himself with the treee...the green leafs take up my attention of the eyes

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments people.
Unfortunately Paul this pic was taken with my Sony DSC-H5 on an auto setting about a year ago, So I don't have the setting info,
And yes the lighting could be alot better and regarding DOF there is lots of room for improvement .
Fortunately I was lucky enough to be given a shiny new Sony Alpha700 for xmas. But due to living in the Tropics and it being the "wet" season" I'm not getting many nights were the weather is good enough to try out my new Sony on Manual settings right now.
Can't wait for it to dry up a little :)

Alex The reason I took the shot from this angle, was because he was up the tree above my head (umm... I'm only 5"2"tall ) and I had to use the zoom to get him, and I am way pass the age were I could have scaled the tree next to the one he was in, to get a better shot. :lol:
