Iguanas and Hummingbirds
      #1728777 - 04/02/17 11:35 AM (70.26.26.30)

Almost finished going through this year’s photos. The local iguanas enjoyed the smorgasbord of left-overs I saved for them. The first time we went to feed them, there was just one lonely soul sunning on the rock. The second time there were others.









The hummingbird was a frequent visitor to the garden. I never tire of watching them and trying to get a good photo.

Taking a rest

there are some REALLY BIG iguanas at Club O----saw one that must weigh 40--50 lbs----at least-----was startled by the size-----guys on the maintenance crew told me there are several huge ones that reside in the mangroves --cute --?--no,--but a site to see---------mini dinosaurs.

We saw a bunch on the road near the Cadisco. They are so cool. Where is the mangroves?

Loved the photos. Every day at GCBC a hummingbird visited our bougainvillea covered lanai. Yet, I never got a good photo. Thanks for sharing.

I was experimenting to get good wing definition. The first three were using a shutter speed of 1000, and the last 2 I changed it to 2000.
