Water Dragon

Found in the main duck pond in the Botanic Gardens.

I got too close to him the first time I tried this shot and he swam away under water. However, the pond is shallow so I just followed him until he surfaced.

See where this picture was taken.

    Thanks Andrew, feel free to do so :)
    The only bummer is that the water was brown, but without tinting it in photoshop there wasn't much I could do about that.
