450D/50 Photo 11 “Water Dragon”   Leave a comment

I work in Brisbane, and can have late or early finishes, so often before or after work, I will go for a wander around the Roma Street Parklands, lots of ponds, flowers, different plants and of course wildlife, the most prevalent is these lovely Water Dragon, and I have captured enough images of themĀ  over the years to probably filll a book.

This little guy, was on top of a Hedge, catching bugs, and posed nicely for the camera, which was great as I was again using the 450D/50mm prime, so could only zoom with my feet, and he was quite tolerant of me moving closer to him to compose this photo.

Canon 450D/50mm, Shot in Raw, Processed in CS5, F1.8 (probably should have been F4), 1/1600, shot in AV mode.

Though I would include 2 photos in this post and include another Water Dragon Image.
