Photos taken from deck outside our rental home: Banaquits and bullfinches in bowl of sugar. Crested hummer wondering why he an’t get in on the action.
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.
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?
Yes, that’s a rainbow in the background! Cannon Beach, Oregon. Until this trip we had never been to Oregon. What a fun trip!† That’s their famous Haystack Rock (235′)† in the background where puffins nest each spring for 100 days. Anybody out there smart enough to figure out the ’50′?
OK, Smarty-Pants, where am I? Where in the USA? † HINT: I am traveling with Steve and Martha.
