Is it natural? Or you added colour to it?

Thanks for your comments!

@Silent,
Yeah! Must be =D

@Paresh,
Yep, it’s natural. It got this color because of the hard light (warm feeling) and the earth behind him.

What a fantastic portrait. How did you get so close? And how big are these animals?

I was like 8- 10 feet away from him and sitting on the very road that he came along: D

According to “wiki” they grow up even to 3.21 meters (10.5ft). But, this one is somewhere around 4-5ft (Like most of the adult water monitors that I have seen in Sri Lanka)

Thanks for your comments MD & K!

MD,
I think it’s Black (but in this pic it came dark blue with the settings) or even it could be dark blue for real (I need to check it again, if I get to see one soon :D)

K,
Really? :D

It’s not an easy task to capture it, cos they won’t keep the tongue out even for a sec and even worse when you have no idea in which point he’s gonna put his tongue out. I guess my patients paid off well here =D

Awesome beyond words! Especially that killer tongue, with its sleek look and beautiful blue shades.
