It is officially open season on the green iguana in South Florida. They were brought here through the exotic pet trade by humans looking to capitalize on their potential as household pets. But as they continued to grow in numbers and flourished in the wild tropical climate of Florida, the green iguana is considered a nuisance. A bounty is now out for the capture and killing of these creatures.

Lara C. Chapman is a fine art nature photographer, content specialist and professor, teaching communication arts and media studies online courses at several universities, including Florida International University in Miami.
Searching for a better way to connect with her local community, Lara purchased a camera in 2017 and began visiting public parks and attractions throughout Palm Beach County and beyond. What she soon discovered through the magic of a camera lens quickly morphed into a profound love for nature photography and poetry. And now thousands of photographs and hundreds of poems later, Lara created the Poetry Picturebook Series and continues to turn her images into works of fine art hung in spaces throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.
She lives with her husband, Patrick, two children, one dog, and four cats in West Palm Beach, FL.
