Iguana Sky

Iguana checking the sky while perched on the top of the wall that surrounds the ancient city of Tulum, a Mayan ceremonial and residential community in Mexico.

The walls are 7 feet wide, plenty of stone to keep Mayan enemies at bay, and space enough for an extended family of iguanas to sun themselves.

    He is simply divine…regal in his own right.
    I am so happy that you captured and shared his moment in the sun with us!
    Travel safely and please keep ’em coming.

    Love the picture, but I’m a fan of lizards and snakes.

    Wonderful photograph! He looks so happy enjoying the sun. It looks almost as if he is smiling 🙂

    What an amazing photograph Barbara, I love this and he looks as if he owns the place, either that or he’s doing some serious sunbaking! Thank you for updating my new website on your site – I very much appreciate this. Kind regards, Lesley
