|Forest Dragon, Atherton Tablelands, Australia|
In the end, I got only a handful of shots before he skittered away, faster than I would have imagined possible. Too bad, because I still wanted to try some wide-angle images. But this simple portrait was not bad for a completely unexpected opportunity. Better, in fact, than my picture of the tree!
Just after I took this picture, I hopped on the first of a series of airplanes to bring me home. It was a remarkable, and productive trip to Australia - one of my favorites of all time.
Next on the agenda? After Christmas and New Year's, we leave for a month in Sri Lanka, chasing endangered primates. But for now, I'm just happy to be home.
