An Australian "Eastern Water Dragon" - I went for a wander this morning whilst the rain had eased for awhile, and this bloke decided to have a bit of a stickybeak while I was sitting under a tree - he turned out to be a grouchy bugger and gave me a warning hiss before decamping into the bush.

Grumpy maybe, but he is very handsome and posing beautifully here.

A rather beautiful close-up wildlife photograph, which ticks all the right boxes for me.

He may be grouchy in a self preserving way, but you have admire all that intricate detail he owns. Seems you got every detail in sharp focus. That sardonic look is priceless. TG

I can just picture the scene Bill-- you sitting under a tree,doubtless having fourty winks. Its enough to make any self respecting Water Dragon start 'hissing off' back into the bush.GrinGrinGrin
