A Picture's Worth A Thousand Animals

Animals make for great photo subjects everywhere — how many "cute" pictures do you get in your in-box? They're especially photogenic, it seems, when you're in a foreign country, having disembarked from a cruise ship. Below is a sample of the creatures big and small, lovable and not, that we have encountered…

Alaska-bearAs close to a grizzly as we've ever been — or ever want to be — in Alaska.

Cabo-birdsOn cruises, sea gulls are everywhere…after all, we're the ones invading their environments. These ones happened to be off the starboard side of the ship, in Cabo San Lucas.

Puntarenas-crocNobody goes to Costa Rica without seeing a menacing crocodile (is that an oxymoron) — this fellow was entertainment (?) on a shore excursion in Puntarenas.

Belize-butterfliesButterflies aren't always free, are they? This one was accessible at a farm outside Belize City, and you don't know what you've missed if you've never seen a Belizean butterfly.

Roatan-dolphinRoatan, Honduras, is one of the places where you can swim with the dolphins and we did, for the first time. We have dozens of (purchased) pictures to show for it.

EagleEagles are irresitible for photographers, no matter how many times they've been shot (photographically) and you almost always find them at the top of a tree…even naked ones like this.
