|Location||Galapagos Islands- Isla Ferdinandina|
|Reason For Making the Image||This was one photo I took while visiting the Galapagos Islands. The marine iguanas are actually very peaceful animals. Most of them were sunbathing and ignoring us when we passed through them. It was lucky that we spotted the two iguanas fighting. I grabbed my Canon 7D and shot a series of images before they stopped fighting. Marine iguana are usually very dark in color so I converted the color image into black and white for submission.|
|Lens and Focal Length||Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 at 154mm|
|Shutter Speed||1/800 sec|
