Superb colour and texture. Good poser too! A shame about the lack of catch-light in the eye in the second one. (A case for a digital implant?).

Seems as though it was looking right at me in the first image there Harold and then away and off to the right in the second. I chased this one about the lawn for what seemed to be a good long while. Laughing One thing that puzzles me though, I only used one flash but yet there are two separate spots of light in the anoles eye, in the first shot. Think



Here a much closer look. One is round the other square, like a pixel. Think

Thanks Harold Very Happy

d'oh! You know Rik... Think That never "dawned" on me. Laughing It was just shortly after noon that I took this and it was out in the open on a somewhat sunny day. Very Happy

No. This is major discovery in the evolution of the eye.

Soft parts of fossils do not survive but this shows that a light receptor with a pixel-like structure may go right back to the dinosaurs, remaining only in some primitive vertebrates.

The development of cones and rods was more advanced, paralleled, in modern times, by the development of film. Good luck with your doomed digital technology Laughing

Don't know a whole lot about evolutionary biology but I do find it to be very interesting reading or to listen in a lecture, when I come across it. Still sometimes suff like that gets over my head but it is food for thought and I enjoy it anyway. Very Happy

Thanks Harold and Jordan Very Happy
