Bearded Dragon lizard, Murray-Sunset National Park
While travelling through the Murray-Sunset National Park last year during our holiday we came across this lovely Bearded Dragon, one of many species of lizard common here in Australia. He stopped and posed beautifully for me in the late afternoon sun.

Below is a photo of the track we were following when I saw the lizard. The plants are predominantly mallee trees which are species of eucalyptus. The bush here stretches in every direction for many kilometres. It would be very easy to get lost in thick scrub like that, so one does not wander far from the track.
