Komodo Dragons on the beach

While returning from an afternoon scuba dive to our live a board ship, the Seven Seas. We spotted a group of Komodo Dragons sunning themselves on the beach. We approached the shore in our dive boat, I slipped into the water and slowly swam towards shore taking pictures until I was in about a foot of water. It wasn't until later that I learned just how good a swimmer the dragons were.

Location: Rincha Island, Komodo Islands, Indonesia
