Eastern Water Dragon (Australian) – Photos above and below taken in Lane Cove National Park, Sydney.
Eastern Water Dragon – unusually, this juvenile was perched on the top of a lantana shrub. Normally these lizards relax on tree branches, logs, or on the ground sunning themselves. It seemed to be inquisitive and watched me watching it. Suddenly, it lunged at a flower and greedily chewed it up. I had never seen them eat flowers before!
