The Human Oil Slick Gets Fried?

While at Caneel Bay for lunch this guy plops down near us and slathers on sunscreen. Then he wades into the water for 2 minutes, gets out and plops back down in his chair. Guess what? He left behind a big oil slick in the water. I imagine he got fried.

Some birds down here are fairly tame, meaning they are not bothered by people. They, the birds, just go about their business. For instance, if you are wading in a school of small fish, a pelican might dive into the water 3 feet away from you. After all, first things first. Below are photos of a great blue heron and a great egret, both standing in the middle of the road. The egret is after a lizard on a road-side tree and, cars be damned, the egret wants that lizard. As we approached the heron it casually walked into the nearby mangroves to hunt for lizards and fish.

Night of the ….. Frog

I tell ya, the creatures you see down here on St. John are fascinating. Take this teeny night frog which I almost stepped on the other night. It will sit on a quarter without going over. I got on my hands and knees, put my camera on macro, and placed the camera 6 inches away. No kidding, I was that close. I flashed 3 shots and it never moved. Hmmmm, did I look that appetizing?
