HIDDEN DRAGON

Bearded dragon, Pogona barbata

I chanced upon this bearded dragon camouflaging on a log while bushwalking. I was amazed at how its colouration so closely matched the colour of the log. By using an off-camera flash, low angle and a close perspective I tried to capture an image that showcased it in its habitat.
