Monitor Swimming Gracefully

Having ended the Mangrove Broadwalk, we headed to the bridge hoping to find some migratory birds. I did spot a few but they were far away, too much for my camera's zoom. In the meantime I photographed a large Malayan Water Monitor swimming across the water. It swam very gracefully like a mermaid, although those sharp claws and thick skin doesn't make it look like one.
After getting the first shot, the monitor actually 'dived' into the water for some reason. I tried my best to get a shot of it with just its tail visible, but by the time I had my camera ready, it was back on the surface again, leaving me with this shot.
