Leaping Upward

Here is a photo of an Intellagama lesueurii lesueurii (eastern water dragon) leaping upward toward a higher vantage point.

This isn’t the sharpest of photos, but I do like that it captures the act of movement quite well.

I played around a bit whilst processing this shot. At the moment I’m happy with the result. Makes the photo feel a bit more dramatic, I think. Dramatic on a small scale.

This photo is available as a print here.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-twentieth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “What a Treat!“.

I’ve included this photo as it’s not often you get the opportunity to capture a lizard leaping.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

Tina is hosting this one. Patti is hosting next week’s.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.

    Nice catch SH! Your “lizard leaping” line reminded me of that song “The 12 Days of Christmas” 😀
