Goanna portrait


Photographed among the rocky outcrops near Lake Gairdner, I feel this image portrays an air of arrogance. In reality this goanna was a gentle creature that, to my surprise, approached and sat next to me. Now too close to photograph, I just enjoyed a wonderful experience with a wild animal.
