You got your beach (and boardwalk) fowl:
Running goats & climbing goats:
Wilbur and his friends:
|I just love this one!|
Which means this one must be Charlotte:
|At home we call this an orange garden spider. Don't know what it's called on VG.|
The mighty pelican (don't you always think of Ogden Nash?):
And a tiny crab--look closely:
Here are some flower shots by day:
|I think this was a flamboyant.|
One evening near twilight I went outside and randomly shot some flowers on a micro setting with flash. I was surprised by what the results were:
|Tiny bougainvillea blooming out of the rocks|
|This hibiscus just might be my favorite shot|
We also saw frigates, hummingbirds, grackles, and bananaquits flying around the villa but weren't able to snap photos of them all. And there were dozens, if not hundreds of flowers that I didn't shoot, including the wonderfully fragrant jasmine blooming outside our door at Euphoria that laced the air with its delicate perfume. Melanie shot lots of lizards and a few skinks but I somehow came up empty-handed where those are concerned.
One of things I love best about this island is the lack of demarcation between indoor and outdoor, between humans and animals--it's just all there in a wild jumble for the [picture] taking.
P. S. Happy birthday, sweetheart! I scheduled this post at 10:15 on 10/15 in your honor.
