Nature Comes Calling

Living close to nature, like on the fringe of Everglades’ National Park, it’s normal to visit the unexpected. But occasionally when nature comes to visit you it comes as quite a shock.

Take this little fella for instance… Clinging desperately to a cluster of leaves as the combined effects of a cold front and a north wind┬álast week knocked him out of a gumbo limbo tree.

Iguanas are common visitors to Azul del Mar in Key Largo these days.

The little Godzillas, with a population of tens to hundreds of thousands across the region are becoming a nuisance. Anyone is free to trap them at home but Florida law forbids relocating them or cutting them loose into the wild somewhere – since that’s pretty much where this thing started years back!
