Zonata............at last!

Recommended Posts

Looks like they're ready to get it on. Saw them circling the slate so grabbed the camera quick. It had the $30 50mm on it but it is fast which I needed to take the pics by tank light only.

Been trying to get a shot for a while but they are very shy till they get bigger. The male is only just starting to get his colour.

800iso f1.8 1/30 sec My hands not as steady as it used to be so not so sharp at such a slow shutter speed

Female looks great, how sure are you about the males colouring?

In what way? he's only about 10cms and IME they don't begin to show really good colour till around 15cms when they drop some red and gain some blue.............it improves with age/size. Hopefully, he'll end up like this
