This photo of a Bearded Dragon was taken beside the Murrumbidgee River Road on the afternoon of 30 September 2009 by my friend David Merrylees.
About the photographer: David drives down Murrumbidgee River Road morning and afternoon and often spots all sorts of wildlife, wedgetail eagles, lizards, snakes, emus and the less welcome kangaroos.
He’s is a farmer near the township of Carrathool and an irrigator, but hasn’t had enough water to do any irrigating for about 4 years. He’s always enjoyed photography but only recently upgraded to a digital slr. You can view David’s photos at Flickr or chat to him on Twitter @dmriver
