Those are beautiful close-up shots. Great work on these!
Thankyou for the info about the different Iguanas and I also noticed the spiny-tailed were not afraid to come close to me and lay in the sun just two feet away.I got a bit nervous not knowing if it would strike like some greens do.
That's because it's a different species, Doug. The ones you're seeing are green iguanas (Iguana iguana) and not the spiny-tailed iguanas (genus Ctenosaura).
They all look sun bleached in Mexico compared to the imported ones here in Canada that are brighter green.
