Who's the boss?

Another Iguana shot to cement my reputation as the Iguna-man. He sure looks smug - almost like his smiling for this portrait shot.

I'm not sure what's up with Iguanas - the last one I took was on display in the Barcelona aquarium. This one was taken in the Jurong Bird Park (Singapore). They seem to crop up in places totally unrelated to them. This fella was unbathing on a wooden platform in the tree tops of an aviary. It was a totally uncontrolled environment - I was about 3 meters away with no glass inbetween us for protection. But that's nothing; Veloran got even closer and got a snap shot using a wide angle lens!

So glad to see you again, Duane! This shot is so deep and rich in color tone. It's actually kinda hard to think of it as anything else but beautiful!

This is a beautiful picture. It reveals the beauty, mystery, and interesting detail of iguanas I never noticed in them before. He looks somewhat "kingly" to me. LOL
