This photo above was taken about a thousand miles south of where I am posting from, at Chan Chich Lodge in Belize. It won a prize in Sony’s annual photo contest, which we always enjoy reading and gawking at. Even though the photographer was in Panama, he might as well have been here, where I believe we have this same species in the forests surrounding the Lodge:
Cautelosa / Cautious. Taken on June 12, 2016, while working in the field, this iguana was near a small creek had done several reptile shots until I got this one.
