Cute animals, and they bite

I believe a lot of phtographers love the great nature shot when they see one. The problem is when you see a great shot,

and get so involved in it that you forget this isn't a nice little puppy. This Iguana is a good example. I didn't have my telephoto on so I just eased myself down to take the photo. When the shot was taken the Iguans tried taking my hand off but hit my camera instead.

After I gathered myself I thought twice about trying to get a few more photo's. I try to be respectful of animals but think I don't always give them the space I should.

Personal experience has taught me that the most innocent and docile looking creatures are often the first to strike a bite! If I don't have my telephoto lens, I don't get close with unfamiliar animals! .. anymore.. ;) Antibiotic shots are not a lot of fun!
