We have not seen our old neighbor for the entire winter. We thought that he had moved to a warmer area. He was not happy that I caught him out on the grass catching some sun. He saw me, snapped this photo and he was in the water swimming away. He is an Iguana and is about 3 feet long (almost a meter). Do zoom.
Thanks for stopping by, taking a look and for all your previous favs and comments. They are very much appreciated.

Well camouflaged, but he certainly has his eye on you and ... I do like the way he flares his nostrils, the leaves look almost like green flames, coming out of them ... watch out! My guess it's an Iguana ? a nice visitor to have around ;)) BB

guess who's been playing in the algae again ! LOL Just like a mini Dinosaur, now if you can just teach it to nibble your grass, you will never need to mow again ! Well done & ~Cheers~

An interesting neighbor you have. Superb capture, even if he did not leave you much time to take a picture.

He looks rather wise . I should love to have reptiles like this in my garden, although I dare say he might flatten the flowers.

He would be very welcome in my garden but I think he would need a big thick jumper it's sunny but cold. Nice shot.

I love these guys but I guess it might be different if we were overrun with them. Nice pic Dana.

Wow! he is quite a good size. In many places he would be considered a good meal. When I was a teenager I took a trip to Mexico with my Spanish class. During on of the bus rides we stopped at the side of the road where a few people were selling things. One old woman had an iguana draped over her head like a hat. It was alive, but seemed to be content like that. When I asked my teacher if she was selling it as a pet he laughed and said she was selling it as a meal. Perhaps the iguana would not have been so happy on her head if he had known that! Thanks for sharing this great capture and bringing back old memories for me. :)
