Itís embarrassing to be so repetitive óbut I almost lost my cookies when I saw this Iguana

I start with this shot, which I took when I spied it on the hedge at the fence, to give you a reference to size. I would say it was the size of a small cat.




Maybe this iguana hoped I was not coming too much closer yet stayed wary. He even did a 180 while I put my purse down and tried to become invisible






In the end I tried to creep up more, and it turned and plopped to the ground sounding like a dropped watermelon

Iím throwing in this one to remind and show you how afeared I have been of accidentally stepping on one.

2. Wow, my dear Mira!

These are great shots.

The next to the last one, of its head, is amazing.

Thank you for getting these!

6. Stepping on one is not the problem,

but imagine walking around that frass and suddenly have a dashing blur of motion near your feet as it flees.
Would make my heart stand still for a second, to be sure.
