    'twas tricky - hand holding 1/25th sec at 200mm while dripping sweat due to the very hot and humid conditions inside the lizard enclosure, not to mention the large number of people passing through and the fact that Johnno and I had inadvertently entered the exit end and were going against the flow.

    Thanks Margot :)
    hehe I try.
    Thanks :)
    Lizards are great for texture :) Wouldn't even know it was taken through glass eh ?
    The heat and humidity almost did me in too Helen. We got outside and the 29C temperatures actually felt cool and refreshing (well for about 5 mins anyway).
