Antigua - Part 2

In Antigua, there are a great many Lizards!

Here is one that visited our balcony one day:

They were pretty trusting, as you can see. All of these shots were taken using a D700 + Nikkor 200mm f4 micro, at a range of about 2-3 feet.

This next one is my favorite - fantastic camouflage and, if you look carefully, a bright blue eye...

Whereas this guy didn't seem to mind standing out:

In fact, this last one only turned orange in direct sunlight, a very strange effect. If look near his eye and his belly, which are in shade, you can see his real coloring. I'm not sure what causes this - it's almost as though they glow in direct sunlight.
