How I Took This Photo: Sunbathing Skink
There it was, a skink, out in the garden, on a rock, sunbathing as I opened the door to take in the morning. So I went for my camera instead of my toothbrush and fired away. First from six meters, then five, then four, circling around the skink to find the perfect shot. She seemed to enjoy the sun so much that she didn't mind my prying camera, so I moved in ever so closely and gently till I was seeing eye to eye with her, about six feet away. My 100mm macro lens hit the spot, so sitting on the grass, wet with the morning dew, barefoot, and with disheveled hair, I took this keeper. One out of twenty or so shots. And it's now in dreamstime :)
