Capture of Lace Monitor
Lace monitors are the second-largest monitor in Australia after the perentie. They can be as long as 2.1 m (over 6.8 ft) with a head-and-body length of up to 76.5 cm (2.5 ft). The tail is long and slender and about 1.5 times the length of the head and body.23 Maximum weight of lace monitor can be 20 kg(44 lb), but most adults are much smaller.
These common terrestrial and often arboreal monitors are found in eastern Australia and range from Cape Bedford on Cape York Peninsula to south-eastern South Australia. They frequent both open and closed forests and forage over long distances (up to 3 km a day).
They are mainly active from September to May, but are inactive in cooler weather and shelter in tree hollows or under fallen trees or large rocks.

I am a passionate Amateur nature and wildlife photographer and like to dabble in all forms of photography. I find each photographic discipline presents its own challenges and rewards when you get it right. I also am a volunteer photographer for the RSPCA in NSW. I am a Nikon man and have just migrated to full frame however there are a number of spots left for additional lenses.

My equipment includes
Nikon D600 and D90
Nikkor 300mm
Nikkor 70-300mmVR
Nikkor 24-85mm VR
