This is a Fiji Island Banded Iguana.
A very curious little critter who kept, at least, one eye on me.

Hi Steve;
It is so good to hear from you! Thank you.

Hi Phyllis;
Thank you!
I was so surprised and thrilled.

Hi Alex;
It has been awhile, I'm really glad to hear from you. Thank you!!
I shot the image in camera raw, making a few minor adjustment there. I then opened the image in PSE6. There I made a curves adjustment, cropped and no sharpening. I shot this image through glass and found it necessary to apply the curves adjustment to illuminate any indication of the glass.

BP Staff and editors;
I'm honored to have my image selected as the feature image in SnapShot, edition #514. Thank you.

G'day *CARLA*!

My heartiest and warmest Aussie congratz for the EP and 2nd PLACE awards bestowed upon this very colourful Nature study.
The lizard is such an intense and eye catching green yet it still cannot overcome the impact of that wonderful eye that has been made so prominent by your sharp focus and shallow depth of field.

Iggie is a resident in the reptile house at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. Each year the zoo hosts a photo competition for images taken within the zoo. Iggie was my entry in the animal portrait category. I'm pleased to say I was awarded 2nd place in the 2011 competition.
