[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This lizard has grown up in my garden. I think it is a bearded water dragon but have not confirmed that. The first time I saw him about 12months before this photo he? was about as long as a housebrick. Now he is about twice that length and much much thicker in the body. He likes snacking on ham scraps and other meat I throw out but tends to leave the veggies. The day this photo was taken he was keeping a good eye on me but let me get quite close and he stayed still for about 15 minutes.

Hallo Sue
I missed out on this lovely lizard as you posted it while I have been on leave. I am glad I stumbled across it paging through the gallery. The details you captured on this lizard is really striking and very pleasing to the eye. The texture and shapes of the scales are seen with great clarity, the spikes on the head enchanting and admirable and the eye that looks back is beautiful. This is indeed a handsome reptile and you have captured it in a great pose showing detail of the face and of its back. Thanks for sharing. It was a pleasure to stop by. Best regards.

wow! crystal clear - you've nail this congrats!!!!
