Water Dragon

By Joeblowfromoz
Thanks to everyone for your kind comments and votes on my little kingfisher, and have another couple I will share with you all at some stage, but in the meantime have a few of a different kind for me to show.

This is a water dragon - they spend sometime in the water, but just as much time on land. We had one as a pet once and had him for a very long time and was very tame - could pick him up and take him just about anywhere with us.

In this image, the background was somewhat horrible, so I have burnt out the background totally and come up with this. Also dealing with taking the photo through glass, and dealing with the reflections and dirty marks, so fairly pleased with the way it turned out. Hope you all had a great weekend.
