Thanks! The DFA 150-450 and K3 are a great combination (although a little challenging to hand hold). I seldom use a tripod.

Great expression. Love the bokeh. I find the rock in the right foreground a bit distracting.

Yes, it was in the rock garden at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra.

Unfortunately I'd need to crop out too much of the Dragon to eliminate the rock.
