This photo was taken by Jerry Smith in April 2013 on Sanibel Island near the north end while strolling the beach. He used a Canon SX50 camera with a shutter speed of 1/800 sec. at f/5.6, 138 mm focal length and ISO 200.
Jerry's comments are: The Heron was stalking the bushes close to me and I wanted the Heron image but as I took the shot he captured the lizard and the rest is history.
