Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #220: One Subject Three Ways
Today is a very warm day. I was in the garden taking a few photos – yeah I know, most unusual – when I heard a bit of a rustling in the undergrowth. I knew exactly what it was. A Goanna. I went into the garden and as they always do, the Goanna ran up the nearest tree.
This one is a small one but is the first Goanna for Summer. He lay as flat as possible against the trunk so I wouldn’t notice him. I went onto the verandah so I was level with him to grab a couple of photos.
I noticed there was a red spot on his face. Goannas always have ticks on them so I had to get a closer photo just to see if it was a tick.
Just as I suspected, it is a tick. He didn’t seem to have any other ticks that I could see.
