Lizard Project- Fun with Photography, Thanks to Vincent Musi

Some say that a picture is worth a thousand words.  I think I have never been more in agreement with that statement than after my day yesterday.  Vincent Musi, a world famous photographer, and his family visited us and he took a shot at photographing our lizards.  Vince had wonderful stories about his life as a National Geographic and freelance photographer, and after working with him, it was clear he was a master of his trade. Vince had prepared a wonderful lizard studio, and we spend hours with him working on getting the right lizard poses (which is very hard to do in a very unnatural lizard studio).  After about 6 hours of work, we finally got a lizard to flare his dewlap in just the right place, at just the right time.  Pretty great to see a lizard in such detail, something I could never appreciate with the naked eye!  Many thanks to Vince for coming down to work with the lizards!    Also, Vince's son Hunter is an expert lizard nooser in training!  He had plenty of natural talent!
