Iguanas, Delray Beach FL

The Wakodahatchee Wetlands is home to more than birds.  The first iguana was lying quietly in a tree; the second was shaking his dewlap when I walked by, reminding me strongly of John Diefenbaker.

    Never thought of “the Chief” looking at an iguana, but you are quite right. In future I’ll have a new perspective on them. Wako is one of my favourite places in Florida.
    (I know technically I can’t have more than one “favourite”)

      Jim – If he’d cleared his throat or harrumphed, the impression would have been even stronger. I figured he was likely cooling off, but don’t really know. And Wako is now one of my favourite places, too! 🙂
