Isn't he gorgeous? I came upon this handsome feller alongside one of the garden's ponds, just as I was heading back to work. He is an Eastern Water Dragon, nearly a metre long. I thought he might be a bit shy, but when I started snapping a few photos, he came even closer and posed beautifully for me. You can see the red chest in the photo below, which identifies him as a male (that, and the adoring females in his harem just out of sight).
