This heron was going through a complicated stealthy maneuver that reminded me of a kitty… sneak, sneak, sneak, then all of a sudden take a short bath.
There are other cool tropical birds here, but I haven’t gotten close enough to get good shots. I especially like the frigate birds who glide around the harbor, looking prehistoric with their angular wings and split tails.
Because they get a steady diet of watermelon and banana and sometimes rum-soaked pineapple garnish, these Pinel Island iguanas suffer our presence. But they dream of the return of the Mother of Dragons when things will be rebalanced, species-superiority-wise.
