Creature Comforts Are Airborne

What do you do when you're suddenly confronted by a fire-breathing dragon? Don't panic. Don't retreat. Don't call for the emergency services.
Grab your camera. Fire off the first shot to blind the marauding, fierce critter.
Then work out the best way to capture the sight of the dragon's wingspan.
I encountered this fella in a shop in Langkawi, Malaysia, earlier this month. But before I reached for my camera, I first asked the lady in charge of the shop if I could take photographs. She immediately gave me permission and nodded when I asked her if the dragon was really a kite.
I'd like to build a kite like that one day. But I think my plans are up in the air.
