SAD 2: Head to Head

Galápagos Islands, 2017

The Social Anti-Distancing (SAD) series continues with two land iguanas going head to head, literally. I started photographing them from far away, then approached slowly and cautiously, getting closer to them and closer to the ground. Eventually I got within a couple of feet. They kept circling each other, heads locked together, pushing back and forth, battling for supremacy. They ignored me completely. They were still going several minutes later, head to head, but they had stopped circling; in fact, they had stopped moving altogether. For all I know, they had fallen asleep!
