Author's notes

Watched two goannas meet. Took around 400 photo, so hard to choose which ones to post.

Great shots Alison. It looks like male combat. It must have been thrilling to watch.

Yes it was thrilling, but they were only metres in front of me and as they tussle brought them tumbling down the hill a bit in my direction I thought it was to get out of there. They were still going at it.

That's understandable, as they're formidable predators and having them fighting fiercely in close proximity would be a bit unnerving. Did you happen to get any video footage?

No sadly. I should have but I was too busy taking photos and I'm inexperienced at taking video with my DSLR. I find it hard to find the subject in Live View when the sun reflects off the screen.
