I have been under the mistaken impression that the dragons running around my home were Lophognathus gilberti or Gilbert’s Dragon, commonly known as the Tata Lizard.
Turns out I have a small herd of Long-nosed Water Dragons – Gowidon (or Amphibolurus) (was Lophognathus ) longirostris. Their cousins.
I will just call this one Eric. He is the largest of them. Probably the Dad.
At last I have been able to try out the new Sony camera on some real wildlife. I am quite pleased with the result. But a lot of these were the result of luck and having a subject that posed patiently for me. I am pleased how sharply the camera focused when at the full 600mm telephoto zoom.
I still have some learning to do to master this camera. And I still need to get out to where the wildlife is. I notice that like the Sony cameras I’ve had before, this one tends to saturate the red and magenta end a little. You can see the effect in the warmer photos above compared with the cooler ones that I have used the “autocolour” adjustment on.
