Camera Critters in the Caribbean

Skywatch Friday now follows my Camera Critters.

My Scenic Sunday entry is here     Justnaturephotosfromeileen


In July, my hubby, son and I went on a Caribbean cruise. Our port of calls were San Juan, St Thomas, Samana and Labadee. For this weeks camera critters I am showing pictures of the iguanas and some birds during our cruise and at the ports.

                                   San Juan Iguanas.



Look who's peeking out the window.

  39. Wonderful creatures! The Iguana is a bit like a dragon, isn't it? Like the Australian goanna, which is dangerous for ducks, turkeys and chicken. It also climbs trees. Great post, Eileen!
