this guy was just sitting in my driveway. I took a couple pix but the concrete didn't make the best backdrop. I actually went inside, grabbed a piece of photo mat, came back out and he was still there. laid the mat in front of him and before I even tried to coax him onto the mat he just crawled on himself. I only managed two photos with the white background before he flew away.

I knew this dragon was alive, and wondered how you managed to pull off that white background - glad you left and explanation. Beautiful shot!
