Hello, have a nice sunday everybody.
Today's post is a colourful dragon I saw in Myanmar.
Half it is brown and remembered me to a delicious Latte Macchiato, but the head is in a phantastic green-turquoise. I tried to find the name in the internet, but no chance, sorry.
But I were glad to see this wonderful little dragon, about 30 cm long, in the phantastic nature of Myanmar.

Hallo Mrs. Dragonheart,
wunderbar farbiges Reptil zeigst Du uns hier. - Ich werde demnächst doch mal die Terrarien im Bochumer Tierpark inspizieren. ;-) - Mit der ID kann ich Dir leider nicht helfen. Auf jeden Fall ein tolles Foto. Danke. Ich wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Sonntag.

Hi Sabine
These little guys don't normally hang around to give you all the time in the world to take a photo especially when you stumble across it in the wild or outdoors. They are far to flight footed for that, so you have done really well to see and capture this little reptilian with such amazing results.
Initially when one sees such a find you want to shoot that first shot for in case the subject might disappear. Normally there is not much time to think about composition or obstacles and your initial concern is to shoot it first and then, if there is still some more time, you will only worry about the cosmetics and all the other technical aspects.
So, I think one should look past the couple of leaves or twigs that came in the way of this composition. The colours are brilliant and the details are absolutely stunning. The exposure was very well controlled as you made excellent use of the fill-in flash.
Great work and TFS.

Hi Sabine, nice shot of this exotic alizard (dragon) and very nice name for this shot. nice weekend to you too.

Hallo Sabine,
schöner, delikat bunter Drache, der auf sympathische Weise den Kopf zur Fotografin dreht. Das Schlaglicht im geheimnisvollen Dunkel des Dschungels erhellt die Szene in herrlichen Farben.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen!

Hi Wishnu,

interesting animal with strange colors.
Good use of the fill-flash.

Hello Sabine,
The thumbnail definitely doesn't do justice to this picture! It is really good! The colours of the lizard and pose you've captured it in are superb. Great use of flash and very good POV.

cool, ein 2-farbiger minidrachen.
ich sehe, du hattest viel spaß im urlaub, sabine! :-)
die schuppen sind einmalig, ob man sich daran verletzen kann?
und der blick, er hat dich schon ins auge gefasst.
ein gelungener schnappschuss, der lust auf mehr macht.
danke & viele grüße, thor.
