Iguanas and lizards at Punta Suarez, Espanola Island, Galapagos

We arrived on the beach with a zodiac boat of the Celebrity Expedition. We were warned to be careful of the iguanas, they are so numerous that it is difficult not to step or fall over one. Some of them are almost two meters long. They all lay silent on rocks, in the sand or on top of each other.

With my big lens, it is easier to take sharp pictures, especially of the lizards which are a lot smaller. We saw some yellow colored species and lizards with red heads.

We kwamen aan op het strand met een zodiac boot van de Celebrity Expedition. We werden gewaarschuwd op te letten voor de leguanen, ze zijn zo talrijk dat het moeilijk is niet op hen te trappen of er over te vallen. Sommigen zijn bijna twee meter lang. Ze liggen stil op de rotsen, in het zand of op elkaar. 

Met onze grote lens is het eenvoudiger scherpe foto’s te maken, in het bijzonder van de hagedissen die heel wat kleiner zijn. We zagen enkele gele exemplaren met een rode nek en kop.

  1. The red headed one and the spotted one are fabulous! We watch a lot of nature shows, yet I have never seen these. I am assuming no humans live here; the lizards have taken it over.
