Burning love for our science?

I just found out that an image from our published research has been selected by NSERC’s “Science Exposed” contest.  This photo is an actual research figure but also a captivating depiction of a novel discovery: namely endothermy in a lizard.

We would all appreciate your vote.  I know some of the other pictures are stunning landscapes and digitally rendered fluorescent images, but our lizard image is the genuine article.
