Shooting The Locals

 Now when I say shooting, I mean with the camera and when I say locals I mean the iguanas. The RV park and Sigsbee housing area is just thick with them, even though they can be a bit elusive. I first noticed them around the park grounds, but it wasn't long before they would disappear into the foliage. Then one day while kayaking in the marina area I noticed there were several hanging out on the branches of the mangrove trees. I tried a couple of times to get some good shots of them, but as you moved closer in the boat, they would retreat into the trees.

 Yesterday, I went out to see if I could find a good vantage spot from land and use my long lens to capture them. Well as you can see I hit the jackpot, the little and not so little (5-6 feet long) guys were out in force.

Hope you enjoyed the shots as much as I enjoyed finding and capturing them in pictures. Take Care and see you back here next time.


  1. Great shots - I love all the colors they're wearing.

  2. Nothing better than a Key West morning. I also love photographing the iguanas. I think the larger ones have much more interesting textures, so I always try to find the larger ones. Great shots.
