A Nobbi Dragon (Amphibolurus nobbi) a moderately common lizard that inhabits eastern Queensland and the northern and interior central parts of New South Wales. They favour drier forests and woodlands where they forage for a variety of insects.
This was found at Wollomombi Falls where it ran along this old fence taking eating black ants that tried to walk along the top of the fence.

Fantastic pose and colours Chris! Yellow and orange textures on reptile's body looks beautifull. Dynamic pose adds some action to this portrait.

Pose, compo and colours excellent, but a bit of noise in the BG and exposure is at the upper limit with very bright colours (difficult to judge as monitors differ).
As is, a good impact, well done!

Hi Chris,
This guy really has some interesting color schemes. Excellent exposure with the bright light and shadow. The composition here really makes him stand out well. Sharp detail with great DOF. Nice work!

Hi Chris!
Great photo of this strange Dragon :-)))))

I like lizards and your looks cute!

Chris, one of the greatest things about shooting lizards is the fact they often strike very nice poses. Yours is not an exception.

Great pov and composition too. I also like the dark bg.

Maybe, the shot could be a little bit sharper, but that's just an opinion.

Really nice composition on the awesome cool capture of the Nobbi Dragon. :)
