No idea of what species this Australian reptile this is.

Lots of them in my yard at the moment, but hard to get a nice shot of them like you have here.

I found one in one of our labs at work that had crawled inside a insect trap that very sticks insides. the poor thing got itself completely stuck down head and all. It took us nearly half hour to extract it whithout tearing its skin off extracting it. Then had to put talk powder on it so it would not stick to itself. We then put it in a box for half a day for the residue to dry out a bit before letting it go.

Well done and a great story with conscience

I had the same thing happen where I used to work. I hate those sticky traps, totally indiscriminate on what gets caught.

Along with the panny 25mm 1.7 this lens has got to be the best buy in m43. They often go used for less than AUS$100 on ebay and you can even pick up a new one for <$170 when ebay is discounting. Mine cost me AUS$59 :)

f6.3 seems to be the sweet spot

Rescued a small (smooth, I think) newt from the swimming pool (first time had one of these), first one focus stacked with Helicon. About 10cm long.

A little late but just saw this. Cooking will remove the lizard from the sticky trap. A little bit of oil and you work it slowly in on the glue where it's touching the skin and they will come off unharmed.

Sorry. "cooking oil", not cooking although I'm sure that would remove the lizard too
