    Am I bad....

    I captured this Gippsland Water Dragon as a Hatch ling. ( About 8year ago) It was around 4 inches long and possibly Magpie Bait at the time.
    I took it home to rear it in my 4ft Herp enclosure and raised it to be a healthy specimen of around to 2ft. It was then released back to the same spot I snatched it from


    Am I bad. I dot think so!

    I would do it again. I would like to have a crack at a Red Bellied Black Snake

    YES....Did you have a Herpetology license to keep Water Dragons. It was also illegal to remove the animal from the wild and it was also illegal to return it. SO YES
    I have been taking photos for 50 years. I am now trying to get into Photography

    Dave you have only to look at the dragon's sad and wistful expression to know that it would have preferred to stay with you! A very nice image with complimentary colours, and an interesting and very effective composition.

    There's that bit of OOFery in the nearer skin protrusions, DP, so perhaps a crop could eliminate its mild distraction.

    At least you have not been TWO bad, though on the Q of your morality you may wish to ponder the sentiment of this sng...
    - or just sing alng with it. (--Or something else completely)
    CC, Image editing OK.
