I had walked onto a gazeebo over the water and this iguana had already claimed it. We played the usual dance of cat & mouse that photographers often do to capture an animal shot.
Finally he stuck his head through the rail and I leaned over the top.
At this moment we both saw each other for a few minutes and exchanged inquisitive looks. After checking me out, he jumped straight into the water and swam off. I stared in disbelief as I watched him swim to the bank. Climb, swim, run, these guys are the original tri-athletes.
