Theme Day: Green

The first of the month worldwide Daily Photo theme for July is "green." This is an easy theme for Costa Rica, as green is all around. We are blessed with lush tropical landscaping, trees, and greenery all around.

I have chosen a green iguana, as it has the word green in the name of the species, and for good reason. Its distinctive green color is ideal for hiding in trees, which is where they spend most of their time.

Green iguanas have several distinctive characteristics besides their green color, which you can see here: the sickle shaped scales running down the back, the large round scale below its jaw, and the dewlap hanging from its neck.

This week we are showing some more photos from our recent trip to Yosemite National Park on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Perfect! I love iguanas, and this one is a terrific specimen. The green is such a true shade and very becoming on him, I might add.

Love those "angry eyes"! Makes me think of velociraptors in Jurassic Park. Scary!

Wonderful shot and great entry on the theme. Glad you posted the previous Caracara, I never managed to get a shot of one of these birds and I almost forgot about them.
