Iguanas at our bedroom window #AtoZChallenge

We were living just north of Olon, Ecuador. Large beautiful trees hung over our two story home. The porch thatch roof was just outside our bedroom window.  Iguanas ran around in the trees.

Iguanas jumped from the trees to the roof fairly regularly. Once there, the glass windows interested them.  They banged on the glass. It sounded like they were knocking on our bedroom window.

I would sneak to the window when they knocked, anticipating a great photo. As soon as they heard me, they sprinted away. I never did get a decent picture of them. I got a lot of the thatch roof.
