    What great animal wonders. You are so lucky. I could go and not see a single animal, and if I did, they would be so far away that I’d have to use binoculars to see them. What a trip you had! So much beauty!

    I just had to stop by and tell you I’ve been enjoying your pictures. My son and my dad were doing almost the same trip just 2 weeks ago. My son took the same picture of the lizard. I love that area. Needless to say…my son did not take pictures of the flowers. They are beautiful.

      Thank you. so glad you enjoyed the photos. My lizard was modelling for me for quite a few minutes! I’d never seen one before. A great moment for me.

    I concur, beautiful photos. Are you a bird watcher?

      My sister-in-law is the biologist and bird watcher. She’s a great travel companion. I see so much more when I’m with her.
