Nice one. I would need the 300 end and nothing closer to get one like that.

Excellent detail on the water dragon. I noticed the white marks on the top right corner of the shot - is that on glass you were shooting through? You might want to try cloning them out as it tends to distract from your quite outstanding shot of the dragon. Really well done, and it deserves all the attention.

Great detail & wonderful composition. Would not have noticed those streaks in the corner if Harriet (Mtngal) hadn't pointed them out - but she is right, they would be easy to remove and certainly make it a better photo.

This fella is a wild one that was sitting on a tree branch with an overcast grey sky behind him. The streaky bits are some twigs in the background. I will clone them out. I really need to recalibrate my monitor as I did not notice them either when I posted it.
Regards
Tony
