Isn't this a beautiful creature? It doesn't take much for me to imagine fire blasting from his mouth, and wings, and barbed tail.... Warning: objects in this picture may appear bigger then they really are. This monster may attack with all the aggression of a clothes peg on your finger.
I'm trying to remember to take close up shots when I'm out shooting. You'd think it would be obvious, but mostly when I shoot wildlife I try and capture the entire animal so all its features are visible for identification etc. One of the general "rules" is to make sure the whole subject is in the frame. Once they become second nature, then you need to think about how you break them.
