Joseph N. DiGilio February 01, 2008

I love this shot, Donna. Allison looks as if she is trying to take a nap. Beckie on the other hand wants to play.
While vacationing in St.Thomas, I was out taking pictures of iguanas when 3 local women came along stood behind me and watched. I could hear them going on about how delicious he looked. I don't think they were canibals so they must eat iguanas in St. Thomas. #5430259

Donna La Mattino Pagakis level-deluxe February 02, 2008

Thank you everyone!!! Allison has her eyes closed because this was captured in macro mode, I was very close. I think she was afraid I would fire a flash. She learned very quickly about me and my camera.
