Jesus Christ Lizard
Photo By Antonio Badilla

  • Title: Jesus Christ Lizard
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Costa Rica
  • Nearest Area: Guanacaste Province
  • Nearest Town: Don't know
  • Brief Directions: Anyone is San José, the capital of Costa Rica, will be able to tell a tourist how to get to Caño Negro which is close to the Rio San Juan between Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
  • Notes: It is difficult for me to remember how to get to a particular place in Costa Rica because I don't drive there. Usually my niece takes me around to photograph the beauty of the country side which is very green and hot. It is, after all, a tropical country. In Costa Rica this type of reptile is called a "Jesus Christ" lizard because it walks on water very fast. The name is not given to be disrespectful to the figure of Christ. I hope no one is offended by the title.
  • Best Season: Winter
  • Description: This shot was taken from a boat close to Caño Negro. It is not easy to take this type of picture due to boat movement. Focal length: 250 mm Aperture: F/5.6 Exposure time: 1/160 sec
  • Gear: Canon EOC Digital Rebel Xti

    Wonderful night/star picture Matt. The colors, and detail with the rocks in the foreground are very nice.

    Beautiful Image! Astro/Night photography seems to be quite a challenge, and you captured a remarkable landmark with it! Hoping to give this a try on next photo trip to the Hawaiian Islands. Will...

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
