I could look at that all day. Beautiful photo, you're very talented.

I suppose goanna's can be aggressive. I wouldn't invite one around for dinner.

Psssssssst! Del! I did hear about Goanna's and legs. Did I ever mention I'm incredibly brave?

A slideshow of a stroll round here in the snow, unfortunately we had a bit of a thaw before I had a chance to get out with the camera but it's still very pretty :)

Aw, that's what I hate about London, it looks nice for a day before it turns absolutely disgusting.

Great photos and very pretty Mad, although I wouldn't fancy trying to negotiate those slippery looking steps myself. :D

Amazing pics, Mad.

Sort of thing that Del's girls would love to see.

Penfold, Mad, beautiful snowy pictures! You almost made me forget how sick I am of winter. Sister J, wow! Our girls are in heaven if they spot one of the tiny lizards we see in the south here. Thing 1 can catch them, even though they're quick as lightening. They would be in heaven if a goanna showed up at one of our picnics! Looked them up on Wiki and this made me laugh:

Alarmed goannas can mistake standing humans for trees and attempt to climb off the ground to safety, which is understandably painful, as well as distressing for both man and beast.

Far out, beautiful photos. What a lovely place Ironbridge is. I agree, very Narniaesque woodland.

:D Catch-up, you'd know what a day is if a goanna parked itself on your upper thigh. I posted a clip on the youtube topic of a goanna in a campsite. Worth looking at ;) .

Yeah, it's easy to laugh about something that's never likely to happen to you. Watched the video... that is soooo wrong. :shock: Poor little goanna.
