Pet dragon

I have other shots of the Common Baskettail (indeed, that’s the species that won the 2009 "Let Crazy Bug Lady Photograph Me" contest), but this one was remarkable in that I thought he was going to come home with me and make himself a pet. He landed, and although he wasn’t a new species, I can’t help but shoot a co-operative dragon, so I crept over. Turned out that I probably could have approached him while waving semaphore flags, accompanied by flamenco dancers and a high school marching band because he just didn’t care. He’d look at me, then look away as if to say, "Meh. I know you." I hung out with him for probably ten minutes, talking to him and petting his pretty wings.
