An assortment of the critters we came across:
|geckos wandered up and down buildings.|
This little red cardinal was dressed to impress.
|Feral cats seem to be in a stand-off with the roosters.|
|Strutting his stuff!|
|The lagoon at the hotel has many visitors|
|Graceful swans swim above and around the many koi.|
|Egrets are everywhere the grubs are.|
For the more exotic ...
|This young monk seal takes a nap on the beach.|
|He only woke up when the incoming tide tickled his toes. He squirmed further up!|
|Volunteers come and watch to see that they are not disturbed.|
|Apparently albatross have their eggs on the ground in a minimal nest, they come back to feed the chick, but leave it on its own. |
No preditors - no worry.
The albatross patiently did their tourist duty and put up with us taking photos ... ar a respectful distance. I was using a 300 mm lens.
