The iguana is an eye-catching eye-shot. As with so many creatures out there, if you look carefully/closely, they are marvels of intrigue and beauty.

My attempt at the supermoon tonight. Lots of high thin clouds and pretty windy. Sigma 50-500 plus Tamron 1.4TC on the K3.

Out of curiosity, how do you focus on the moon with that lens? I was trying with the same one tonight, I felt like I could never quite get it right.

Truthfully I find it quite easy and fast to focus on the bright moon. I use center focus point only, somewhere between /8 to /16.0, start with a 1/200 exposure at ISO 200, take a shot or two to dial in my exposure and or ISO as necessary depending on the current brightness of the moon. It's the same process on a tripod, but first line up the center point using liveview to get in the ballpark then turn it off to use the viewfinder. Using my K-3's liveview to focus on the moon @300mm with that lens is not reliable in my experience.

Ah, interesting, I was trying to liveview focus.

Thanks!
