Default Osprey

An osprey flew overhead a few times, usually just long enough for someone to yell "osprey!", and everybody else to say "where? where?". I was lucky and happened to be looking up just in time to catch this one flying by.

Default Cormorants

I don't usually take many photographs of Double-Crested Cormorants, because - well - they're just not very photogenic. This one, however, was posing and squawking up a storm, so I snapped a pic:



Later, I also took these pictures:

Default Roseate Spoonbills

and this juvenile (catching a minnow):

Wonderful pictures Eric. I appreciate and admire seeing these.

Totally unrelated, but the Cayman Islands are being overrun by Green Iguana's. After mulling what to do, they instituted paid culling: $5-6/iguana. In the first 8 weeks they have culled close to 250,000 iguanas, and have earmarked funds for 1 million. This will stabilize the population. Similarily, almost no native predators.

Anyone want to cast iguana skins???
