Up in the Trees

Posted on

On Saturday morning I was at a local state park with some friends taking some pictures of them, when we sat down on a bench to take a break. It was a photo shoot to capture the last few weeks of her pregnancy so there were a lot of breaks.

While we were sitting there, I heard the leaves in the trees above us rustling. We were at the beach, so at first I thought it was just the ocean breeze. That is until I looked behind me…

do you see it?

Can you see it?

how about now?

How about now?



At least it isn’t winter. Since these lovely creatures are not native to the area, it gets too cold for them and they end up falling out of the trees. I don’t think I’d recover if one of those things fell on me!

  1. Ok, you got me. I’m from FL and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one of them. What is it? Gecko? Lizard?

  2. I was told iguana – who knows?! 🙂

  3. It is an iguana! On the one hand, it would be pretty cool to see one hanging out in a tree, but on the other hand, as you said, they aren’t native to FL. Owners buy them when they’re small and manageable, but when they get big and more difficult to manage, they turn them loose. That’s actually how I got my iguana. The police had captured her in a neighborhood, and she was homeless. I was living in PA, and very lucky for her, it was summer.

    On a related note, Jason and I went to Aruba for our honeymoon, and there are iguanas all over the place there. They would just be hanging out by the pool and everything. The big joke about our honeymoon pictures is that half of them are of iguanas ;P

    I’ve been so embarrassingly behind on blog reading, BTW, so thanks a ton for pointing me in the direction of this. Even though it makes me sad that people don’t take care of their critters – regardless of whether they’re scaly or furry – I still love an awesome picture of a lizard 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. Holy shyte! I think I would have totally freaked. 🙂

  5. Oh…thats scarry…and how it blends into the trees….!!
