Just came back from a five day expedition to Vietnamese mountains. The conditions were very harsh, raining nearly constantly, thus making the dirt roads not passable. We had to unmount ourselves and all the photographic equipment from the rented jeeps and carry everything for 30 kilometers (with a very cold overnight sleep in tents) through the jungle.
Arrived to the place barely alive and still ve had no time to rest because of the planned wildlife photo hunting. But everything paid off, as we had fantastic opportunities to have close-ups of the wildlife as the one above.
It all sounds realistic when you look at the photograph, right?
Well, to tell you the truth, we saw this lizard from our hotel balcony in Mui Ne, Vietnam, climbed down the stairs, pulled out the tele lens and made a shot. Easy, ain't?
