This lizard guy was so fun to watch, his eyes were looking in different directions and he was very aware of all that was going on around him. He wasn't too sure of the zoom lens on the camera when we bent down to take pictures ;-) He kept his eye on us!!
I love turtles and related families so was happy to get to see them there, was also feeding time! :-)
Many beautiful birds to see as well. Was so cool walking through and having them fly overhead along with the majestic butterflies!
Of course there were spiders and snakes as well and I was very happy they were behind the grass. LOL!
Totally awesome banana trees!!!
I captured this photo of Jerry in a candid moment with my zoom lens... the guide had pointed out to him what was going on with the tree branches and logs... he was quite fascinated...
At first it looks like just tiny leaves from a distance, but really it is ants carrying the small leaves! I zoomed in as far as I could go to capture it. They do this all day long.
They travel up the tree branch and into the log to the right, just steady working. It really was interesting to watch.
This little cutie kept popping up all over with that amazing smile! :-)
Loved seeing the hummingbirds at the feeders and flying all around, really created a magical setting.
Kathleen pointed out this tree and said it looked like it was smiling. Of course I agreed and had to take a picture. So adorable!
If you look closely you can see the bird on the flower, he wasn't cooperating with me trying to get a good picture though.
This one however was on her nest... pretty awesome!
Cute inside they had a place to share selfies! LOL
And Kathleen found the "sassy" chair! ;-)
More to come.....
