Encounter with the wise master of the Chinese Garden.
Head image: Malayan Water Monitor, image created at the Chinese Garden on 30 August 2015. Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II at 105mm. f/7.1, 1/250s, ISO 100, Evaluative metering
I’ve shared yesterday images from a visit at the Chinese Garden, at the end of this very visit we met this beautiful mature monitor who, puzzled, didn’t mind seeing me lying down in front of him for a striking portrait shoot.
This less artistic image shows scale; from head to tail the monitor was roughly 2 meters long: impressive!
