    Default The copper dragon

    ID: Skink

    Spotted these tiny beauties in huge numbers all along the trail, not sure if itís the seasonal thing or just a random outburst in their numbers, these slithery skinks just came out of any form of nook and crannies whether itís a small stones or dried leaves that had settled down on the forest floor. The most difficult task was to spot them, and once spotted, framing them was another hell of a ride. Eventually though could manage to get a few frames of these inch and half long beauty, which had slithered through the stones and had almost managed to reach close enough to the leaf to take shelter. The skin, with those tiny scales and the colours made it look very divine, and the way it had bent its body almost showcases the agility of the beauty

    Good spotting. Agree it might have been difficult to compose when it is moving fast through the rocks. The vertical composition looks good. The narrow aperture has helped to get details in the rocks and the leaf. I think you could have safely used an higher ISO (at least 400) to get more shutter speed. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting. The composition is fine. May be moving slightly to your left would have been even better. The critical focus is on the leaf and the camera is angled and not parallel to the subject. So you see that except the head the other portions are not in focus. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
