I fear that the Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Award may not quite be within my reach, but I still wanted to put those up 🙂
A raucous gaggle of pelicans being tossed chunks of fish after one of the sport fishing boats returns to the docks.
A manatee feeding off the seaweed growing on the ropes that hold my friends’ houseboat in place. It’s a big male, over 7ft in length. We could tell it was a boy by the humongous…erm… appendage trailing underneath, which, unfortunately, didn’t come out in the pic
We spotted this iguana in a parking lot. Iguanas, stripey ones like this 5ft specimen, as well as bright emerald green ones, are very common on Key West. When they take flight, they tend to lash out with their tails. Not pleasant if you get whacked across the legs, I should imagine. I didn’t dare go up too close…
Key West was once awash with giant sea turtles, but this pretty much is all that’s left of them 😦 The guy in the Turtle Museum said stocks were slowly recovering.
