Holding the camera as steadily as I could, I hit the zoom lever. Not knowing in which direction to turn, I simply pressed the shutter button repeatedly. .
Coming from all directions, they were everywhere. From the top of the rock formation, from in between the rocks, from the grass, they wanted a handout. The next thing I knew there was one on my leg, scaling it like a tree trunk. Then one climbed up the leg of the blue chaise lounge, strategically placing himself right at the edge of my plate, which was nestled securely in my lap. Their claws, spread open revealing their toes, tickled as they crossed my skin. While one kept licking my nail polish on one foot, the one in my lap took the direct approach, diving into my salad!
Lifting the plate in high in the air with one hand, I grabbed pieces of lettuce and sucked off the dressing before handing it off. They patiently waited for more, tilting their heads in all directions as they watched and waited. Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery leaves…they devoured it all with ease. It was quite apparent that they loved vegetables, although the bread and chicken seemed to go down easily too. Some larger ones chased the smaller ones away even before they had a chance to get near my chair. Oh well, I guess there are gluttons in every species.
However, was it coincidence that when I returned from the beach and approached my chair , I noticed something extra right on top of my beach bag. Iguana poop! Yes, dried, hard, iguana poop lying right on top of the bag! LOL!!!! Nothing but the best when you’re on vacation!
