Bearded Dragons in Colour

Here are some colour shots of our two bearded dragons, as promised in an earlier post. As you see there are a mix of modified  art images, two of the male and one of the female, the rest are of the female without art modification.

  1. The Beardies amaze me! I love to watch the big fat ones creep along the surface as if they’re stalking their prey! Big Lucy is huge now. Little Lucy is growing fast too. Is the female gray? She looks gray in the photo. That’s pretty and I like the pattern too. Is the male yellow? They’re really pretty, both. I changed substrate to paper towels so that I could remove the droppings immediately without any problem. The vet tech suggested it. I like the colors of the backdrop here too. Aren’t these little creatures fun, though! 🙂

      I modified the colours a bit for the male’s images. His colour is stronger than the female – more oranges and rusty browns/reds. The female has a sandy darker tone. Depends on the lighting – there is a bit of blending. 🙂

    I am fascinated by your bearded dragons, they look so similar to our bearded water dragons in Australia. Such lovely markings on these ones.

      Glad you enjoyed the post. The more you observe the lizard behaviour, the more you can see how similar they are to birds.
      The bearded and water dragons are two distinct types. We have had Chinese water dragons, but lost them to illness. The bearded dragons are supposed to be the easiest to maintain. One never knows George has run into a few challenges with her pair. 🙂

        I’ve only seen them in the wild or waiting for handouts at one of our local pubs beside a river. The ones at the pub are fairly tame but the ones I see at home beside the creek are gone in a splash:) Such intriguing creatures.

      So true, they have an unblinking stare. It leaves you wondering what they are thinking. 🙂

  5. The one pose is very majestic and allows us to see the intricate details of the dragon. They are really amazing critters aren’t they.

      Yes they are. Mind you, sometimes I have a flashback to childhood, watching Buster Crabbe’s Flash Gordon serial on Commander Tom show after school. They used to use the lizards as stand-ins for Mongo’s monstrous dinosaurs. The special effects in B&W on a small TV screen could capture a child’s imagination. 😀

  6. We had two lovely dragons who lived to age 11. It was cool the way they would face towards the sun in the mornings. I still miss them.

      Your creations are a fascinating mix of primitive archetypal imagery and modern whimsy. 🙂
