Marine iguana among roots staring at camera

A marine iguana is lying in dappled sunlight among rocks, leaves and moss-covered tree roots. It has a scaly black skin with brown and green patches and is in the middle of the frame staring straight at the camera. Shot with a Nikon D810 in the Galapagos islands in Ecuador in January 2016.
