Eastern Water Dragon

Eastern Water Dragon with is head the only part of its body not submerged in water

I bought a 2x’s extension lens so I could get a little closer to birds and other things that I am photographing.

One of the first ‘test’ photos with the 2x’s is the one above. I am not sure about the picture. I love the lizard, a five year old Eastern Water Dragon, Physignathus lesueurii, I call BillyI like the hyper real quality, but I am unsure about it. I used A 300mm lens with a Canon EF Extender 2.0X III which I am looking forward to using while I out in the desert in the next few weeks.

The picture below is a female Eastern Water Dragon about 18 months old which, like the male Billy, has grown up in the ponds around our place.


The Eastern Water Dragon are fantastic to photograph. They don’t run away if you approach them carefully. You can get very close. I love the dinosaur like quality they have.
