thanks for the DD and all the faves and comments!!

Meet Fernando... he's a male green iguana kept by the Niagara Falls Aviary - Bird Kingdom in their Reptile Zone...
[link]

This picture was taken in a large cage he shares with a female and another male. After a bunch of kids cleared out of the room his caretaker brought him out and allowed me to photograph him from other angles .. you can see those photos also posted on this stock account.

note/link/credit me if you use :)

I wanted to let you know that I used your photo as a reference photo for a drawing of mine. [link]

I was also wondering if I could have your permission to have this on display with my other scratch board art the next time I go to an arts and crafts show (I have none scheduled at the moment, but there should be one some time in the future). Please let me know.

He looks white all over, is that normal? Our iguana here switches between shades of green.

Nice and sharp shot by the way!

pls give me some advice to how to take great photo like this.

:iconbstocked:
bstocked Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2009
you have to have a steady hand and be in a calm frame of mind to take low light pictures without a tripod. i time my shots between breaths and heartbeats
i also take a lot of pictures and hope that a few good ones turn out clear. people like colour and textures so the iguana is a pretty easy subject .. i just filled my frame but gave the eye a bit of space above and ahead to draw the eye closer to the middle of the shot... i know its not really in the top third or the right third ... but that's roughly why i think the photo has appeal

I know that the Nikon corporation cams are the best in the world, but I believe that you are the star here in this take... you are meant to be a photographer.
