Photo of the Day: Textured Rep

Captured in the jungles of southeastern Costa Rica, this little lizard rested in the afternoon heat upon a leaf of a local palm. Composing the image, I wanted to photograph the details of the tropical jungle, highlighting the lizard’s intricate skin while diffusing the background of a deteriorating jungle floor.

Location: Manzanillo, Costa Rica

Camera/Lens Specifics: Canon 5D Mark II with Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM;

1/25 sec at f/4, ISO 1000.
