I have posted photos of these guys before, but I think they are such cool looking creatures. Their markings are so pretty and each one is a little different. We are camping again where we always spot them. I took this photo from our campsite. We used to only see them on the other side of the St. Lucie river, but looks they are migrating to this side.
Here is another wild iguana sunning himself on a rock near a pond. He looked around so I could take photo of his pretty face. 🙂 I noticed that they like grass. They probably help the groundskeepers of the park.
Taken with a Canon 6D and 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. Settings were 1/1600s, f/3.5, ISO 100.
Went on a photo club field trip with my girlfriends to Japanese gardens. They had these iguanas roaming free. They came in bright yellow and green. It was really cool to see. Shot with my Nikon D300s. Settings were f4,1/640sec,iso400 and 105mm. Boost the contrast and sharpened so the lizard stood out.
I never get tired seeing the Anole’s. Especially when they change their color to green to hide from you. They are so delicate. Shot with Olympus TG-4. Settings were f4.9, 1/50sec, ISO1600, 18mm.
I thought we could use a little humor after the events of the past week. This is a tree face my husband put on one of our palm trees. I found it amusing to see the lizard hanging out on its nose.
My settings were ISO 200, f/5.7, 1/80 sec at 300mm (70-300mm). Applied Topaz Adjust’s Photo Pop filter.
An anole with a leaf or wing sticking out of his mouth. Looks kind of tired with those bags under his eyes.
Sorry so late. Lost power for while like most of Florida after hurricane Irma.
Used the Olympus TG4 in microscope mode.
For starters, this is not the photo I had planned on posting. My husband and I were at the house we are renovating. I was brushing off the stone on the column when I noticed this caterpillar on one of the stones. I went to brush it off when I saw it slowly being dragged into a crevice. I took a closer look and saw that an anole had the caterpillar in its mouth. I quickly whipped out my iPhone 6 to take a photo. I was only able to get off one shot. Not the most crisp shot, but I still like that I caught the lizard in action hauling away its dinner. I opened up the shadows, boosted contrast and sharpened. Happy Clicking.
