A Bearded Dragon At Kirkley Hall Zoo

This Easter weekend we spent time with family and visited Kirkley Hall Zoo. It was windy and a little chilly so the reptile house was a welcome sight. We met this Bearded Dragon in there and he was being extremely good, posing for me right at the front of the tank.

I realise that I'm saying "he" when I have no clue whether it's a male or a female!

This photo was taken with a high iso so that my shutter speed was fast enough to capture the image without camera shake as I was hand-holding the camera. You can't use flash for two reasons. One, the animals don't like it, and two, it would bounce off the glass and give you a dark image with a big white spot.

I love the detail in the spikes and scales on his skin.
