Took few hours again today to take another stab at wildlife watching. It did not disappoint us as we were able to snap additional photos of birds in actual feeding, and a butterfly that actually landed right before our steps. What a rewarding day!

Green Jay

Took few hours again today to head out for wildlife watching. We did not go home disappointed!

Was intently watching this palm tree for several minutes now when suddenly out of nowhere came this Green Jay! I thought I was ready for this. Not! Caught only the few seconds of the landing before it flew away with a ripe nut with her...

Patience has always its reward!

How about this butterfly that landed right before us while we were walking? I find butterflies the hardest to shoot because of their erratic flight, but this fella decided to have her photo op for the day!

Orange Oriole, endemic bird specie only found in the Yucatan Peninsula

We were about to head home when we were rewarded with this spectacular scene of an Orange Oriole feeding on nectar from a flower. This time, I was really, really, really prepared for this! My Canon 100-400mm telephoto lens was all set up and ready to shoot!

Here she is eyeing on this flower as if sizing it up before proceeding to gather some nectar... She is such a beauty!
