Chris Gillete says, “Green iguanas are typically on land or in the trees but will readily dive into water to escape danger. They are very skilled swimmers and can hold their breath rather well. This iguana was up on the bank, I was in the water and my friend Alex went up to take a look and the iguana quickly dove into the water to escape him and swam right over to me!
I was able to snap off several shots that I am very happy with, so neat to see them swim!! Photographed with a Canon 80D, 10-22mm wide angle lens, Aquatica housing and Inon strobes.
