Ambush by Jason Asher

Currently unavailable for purchase

Another dragon I shot at Currumbin on the 5th of September 2009. This guy was content chilling out next to this rock waiting for prey to crawl along.

Shot with a 450D and a 70-300 IS USM at 140mm. Post processing with adobe camera raw in CS4.

Shutter: 1/80th
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100

Featured in Dragons Fire – January 2011

    Jason I mistakenly accepted this into “Insects Bugs and Creepy Crawlies” sorry I’ve had to reject it – it is a great piece but not appropriate to the group

  • Thanks fine mate, I suppose it doesn’t quite fit does it.

    Again so very sharp and the colours in his claw especially are great. Pity they’re too quick at catching their prey!

  • Thanks again ;)
