Cute juvenile Great Anglehead Lizard (Gonocephalus grandis). This one appeared orangey because it swam in the muddy stream nearby. This specimen was spotted on the same spot (same fern) for 3 nights. Selangor, Malaysia.

Great close up shots. I have always enjoyed the level of your photography. Someday I need to make it to Malaysia.

Kurt,

As always, those are terrific images. I just love the closeups of the Greater Angelehead. It would be great to see one at that sort of range. The little juvie was very nice as well.


Regards,
David

Thanks, Roki, David.

David - G. grandis are in season now. Not always easy to approach during day time unless you have a 210mm (150mm + 1.4x teleconverter) like i do. I've tried head shots with this setup. At night, it's fairly easy. We took turn photographing this handsome male and some females and juves and they didn't run away at all.
