|Komodo dragon is the largest living lizard in the world. They can be found only on a few islands in Indonesia. They can grow up to 3 meters and 70 kg. This one was photographed in the wild as it was coming towards the water hole. It was moving towards me very fast and I only manages a few photos before having to move out of the way.|

Sawasdee Krap Sitthivet,
Amazing capture of this Komodo Lizard, you have done exceptionally well here under the dangerous circumstances, lovely action kicking up dirt and tongue fully extended very scary, great detailed sharpness with a nice highlighted eye, good exposure control and splendid colours,
Congratulations Steve and have a nice day,
ps. no smilies left (next time)
That's a wonderful shot. It should be great to see these beauties in their own habitat. Thanks for sharing
good capture! tfs
