Reptiles are frequently underappreciated. People assume they don’t have anything to contribute and simply skulk in their corner. But that is not the case, and Yan Hidayat of Indonesia is on a mission to prove it, one photo at a time. While dogs and cats are both chilled, reptiles may be the most chilled due to their cold-blooded nature. Reptiles are, in some ways, the definition of cool. As a result, they know how to truly appreciate the warmth of the sun, as demonstrated in today’s post. Yan Hidayat, you see, enjoys capturing the lives of reptiles, insects, and other amazing animals, especially from up close, and as a result, he’s been known to have captured quite a few outstanding photos of them. One of them is this photo of a lizard relaxing in the sun that is sweeping the internet and, because it has been shared by hundreds of netizens, might be called “gone viral”.

The photographer also explained why he enjoys it so much, saying, “I adore macro photographs because insects and reptiles are quite unique and interesting to photograph.” After capturing the needed photos, he admits, “there’s a feeling of happiness in my heart when we obtain the moment I want.”
Yan also went into greater detail about the hero of today’s story, which he simply labeled as a forest lizard, but which is more appropriately known as the Sulawesi Bloodsucker (scary name, I know), as well as the backstory of this popular shot. “I’ve had this lizard since I was a child; it’s no longer wild and has frequently been the subject of my photographs. It spends most of its time inside my house, but I always take it off somewhere to sunbathe. I took advantage of the fact that it was relaxed in the light and, to my surprise, I was able to capture it.”
Yan Hidayat, an Indonesian photographer, like “macro and reptile images since they are quite exceptional.”
