Hi Rodney,

Nicely captured!

Wow, these are cool. We don't have a lot of reptiles in my area, only snakes and turtles really. These guys are pretty intimidating-looking. How big do they get?

Very nice!

Sadly I have to go abroad or to the zoo to see reptiles, so always appreciate it when people take photo's of them and share.

I did see a few reptiles in Florida but they were mostly shy and stayed hidden, Just this one but not a good shot

Very nice shots! They sure do look intimidating! We have lots of reptiles, but they are only a couple of inches long at the most (lizards of various sorts), and are tough to photograph as they are shy and quick. I usually end up with pictures of twigs and bare ground.
