Frill-Necked Dragon, Rainbow Beach, Queensland, Australia by Jason Sulda

This photo was taken in a little spot called Inskip Point near Rainbow Beach in southern Queensland Australia, It is probably better known around the world as one of the spots where you can take the Barge across to Frazer Island, the largest sand island in the world, it is part of the Great Sandy National Park on the Frazer Coast and is a pristine area for wildlife, this particular shot was pretty lucky as it was taken in the middle of winter just after rain when the sun came out, normally these animals would be tucked away high in trees for the cold weather, although Queensland is subtropical it does still get cold in winter with temps reaching as low as 1deg celsius in the cooler months.

This is a southern form of the animal witch is lighter in colour and can handle the cooler temps where the northern form would probably die in this region, after rain they normally come down out of the tree tops after all the insects that are active, then retreat back to the tree tops where they spent most of their time hiding from predators resembling a tree branch.
