Pentax K1 Mk II. 24-70mm, polarizing filter. I found this very large Green Iguana resting on the rocks at Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park. An invasive species to southern Florida, the Green Iguana thrives due to its adaptations to the local environment. The species is also capable of diving and swimming in order to escape predation. Note the large developed dewlap on its neck. I shimmied down the rocks and waited for right moment as the waves splashed back up.
