The Dragon In The Dungeon
Lens: DAL 55-300 Camera: K-5IIs ISO: 100 
Posted By: Tom Gotzy, 01-11-2015, 07:23 PM

My son, Zach...the animal whisperer of the family, keeps his Bearded Dragon downstairs in the basement inside a HUGE fish tank.
Being a quiet Sunday, I decided to take some portraits of this lizard... this shot turned out pretty well.

Thanks, Dave! Zach really did a good job taking care of this lizard... raised it from a wee, tiny "Pup".
Now it's a huge lizard...hope it doesn't get any ideas of escaping!!

How handsome he is. Great job especially through glass. He looks like he is keeping his eye on you.

Thanks, Susan! He's the perfect model... didn't flinch at all except for his eye closing up. I had to tap on the glass for him to open it up.

It's always fun to photograph! This guy was the perfect subject...didn't move a muscle, only his eye lid.
Thanks for your comment, always appreciated!
