When visiting my Dad in a southern Florida nursing home some years back I went out one morning to one of the terrific nature preserves looking for any type of birds.  I was not equipped well for bird photography as I wasn't expecting to go to a preserve as this was my first time going there.  While walking in the preserve I was surprised to notice this Iguana and reacted to how well it was camouflaged in the leaves. This is a fairly hefty crop.

Note: I'll be out of town for about a week but will be able to view the nice work of contributors while away.

So well camouflaged, Warren! You did well to spot this one - and get such a nice shot.

Wow! Really a perfect camuflage, what a great eye you had in noticing it.

Great find! Excellent camouflage-you must have a sharp eye to have seen this.
