Land Mullet

70-300 L @300mm, f8, 2sec, 600D; Gibraltar Range rainforests, Northern Tablelands

Large skink (Egernia major) was hidden in a lying trunk one and half meter wide. I was lucky to notice and even luckier to get this close
as result of 4th series of shots, each of which taken at closer distance until this (full) frame.
Without the help of the articulated screen during the last shoot the lizard would be gone, I am certain. The Skink (up to 60 cm) was nervous,
long exposures were not easy due to its breathing and eye movements. This is one of these images human eye can't see half as well as the camera was able to. A half black hole was pretty much all I could see.
