Welcome to Daytona Beach, Florida! What a sunrise huh? While here on business and a short vacation, I am taking advantage of every opportunity to snap photos of the wonderful wildlife and scenery here. We lived here “once upon a time” and miss it a lot. This visit we are very fortunate to be staying on the beach. I caught this beautiful sunrise and was awed with the seagulls lined along the shore, greeting the new day. In just two short days, I have had the joy of photographing several new birds that I have not previously seen; and I … Continue reading Masked Stranger…my introduction to the Wood Stork

LA POSADA JUNGLE BUNGALOWS, Manuel Antonio Beach Okay, so today I am feeling nostalgic and also a need to return to the source of creating my blog.

I thought I would share my adventures in cemetery wandering with you today. My husband could tell you that I would rather go roam through a cemetery than visit a park on some days, which is quite contradictory to how … Continue reading In the Natchez Cemetery
I always liked that song by Paul Simon. Kind of fun. I don’t think he had this guy in mind when he sang it though.. This is one of those “other” creatures I mentioned before. You know the ones that are awesomely beautiful and rare to just randomly run into, but that you certainly aren’t inclined to want to snuggle up with. I know, I know, all you snake lovers out there would disagree. I leave you to your cold blooded pets. I have a healthy respect and appreciation for snakes as well as a true love of other reptilian … Continue reading Slip Sliding Away
During our stay in Manuel Antonio/Quepos, we were thrilled to be in a jungle surrounding that afforded us many opportunities to observe and photograph some of the most interesting animals I have ever seen. I’ve shared photos of my monkey … Continue reading Costa Rica Animal Encounters
