Beauty & the "Beast"

"The earth laughs in flowers." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


A quiet stroll in the gardens, in the warm afternoon sun.

Camera in hand, capturing the beauty of nature around me.


Colour abounds around every corner...

The intricate details, an incredible sight.

I step back a little for a different perspective.

And then I see it:
Something entirely different, among the beauty; lazing in the warm afternoon sun, almost prehistoric looking. He too, is enjoying the beauty of nature.

His elaborate details and patterns, proof that creation isn't just an accident but the handiwork of God, the Master Creator.

PS. I don't really think he's a beast! I find Eastern Water Dragons fascinating!

Gorgeous photos! Plumerias are one of my two favorite flowers. When I smell plumeria, I smell Hawaii...

So good. I love the colours and markings on the water dragon. I think my favourite pics here are the kangaroo paws, though. Lovely shots :)
