a BEARDED DRAGON

By TimothyDMorton  
The term "bearded dragon" is most commonly used to describe the central bearded dragon, (Pogona vitticeps}. Members of this genus live in the arid, rocky, semidesert regions and dry open woodlands of Australia. They are adept climbers, spending time on branches and in bushes and near human habitation. Pogona species bask on rocks and exposed branches in the mornings and afternoons. They are found throughout Australia.

This capture was done at the Royal Botanical Gardens of Ontario at their head-quarters in Burlington, ON. To allow a bit more light I used the BOWER RING 48 which gives a 48 LED lights to allow a bit more light, and resting my camera on my tripod to get a bit closer I used the NIKON 5 T Close up lens.

Once home, I opened in Camera-in-the-RAW where I corrected for colour balance, and then opened in Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where i resized to 401 x 600 px, then fooled around till happy with the UNSHARP MASK and last saved as JPEG for upload to my gallery.
