Girgit on the bottlebrush

Garden Lizard, or Girgit

Nikon D300s + Nikon 70-300 VR @ 300mm
f/6.3, 1/320 secs, ISO 400

A mug shot of a girgit ... which is Hindi for a Garden Lizard (Calotes versicolor), a common garden resident. This fellow was sun bathing on a bottle brush branch ... and got curious when I approached and disturbed the siesta.
