Very nice Mette, and he has brilliant colours also. The blue is the highlight for me. Obviously a young animal without too many war injuries also!!!! Great pic!
Thanks Steve. I was so excited when I saw him crossing the walking track…At a point he started whipping his tale from side to side so I left him alone:o)) ..I did notice the lovely blue colour..he is a good looking chap isn’t he:o)) I think he would have been about 1½ metres long from nose to tip of tale. … he made my day!!! :o))

Nice image, love Lacie’s… Such awesome monitors.
Hi Steve thanks for your lovely comment…Lace Monitors are such great characters…They always make wonderful models I reckon…that is if they hang around long enough :o))
Another awesome shot. Love these guys although I don’t know that I’d like to be scratched by those big claws
Thank you for your sweet comment..I have been trying to photograph these fellows for ages…this one was just relaxing in the afternoon sun and not intimidating at all…I have been chased by one since and that wasn’t so funny…a bit scary actually:o))
Fantastic close up! I’m too scared to get close to these guys :|
