[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Australian water dragons have long powerful limbs and claws for swimming and climbing, and have a prominent nuchal and vertebral crest. (A nuchal crest is a central row of enlarged spikes at the base of the head. These spikes continue down the spine, getting smaller as they reach the base of the tail.)

Including their tails, which comprise about two-thirds of their total length, adult females grow to about 2 feet (60 centimetres) long, and adult males can grow slightly longer than 3 feet (one metre). Males show bolder coloration, with red chests and larger heads than females. Color is less distinct in juveniles.

Fantastic capture, Alaettin.
Composition in this square is great. Excellent depth of field and point of view.
Through editing you can easy get rid of the noisy background, I think.
Well done

Hi Alaettin,
extremely impressive detail you caught here, from an excellent low POV. BG is a bit noisy but easily fixable!

Hello Alaettin! Very sharp picture of the Dragon! Great exposure and good tight crop!



Hi Alaettin,
what a great portraite for Australian dragon. Vivid color on eyes. Iris details wonderful as like other details. Sharp focus, POV and composition also great.
I dont know your origin, but your name use here. maybe you from Turkiye or another Middle East country.
Thanks for sharing, best wishes
