incredible & inspiring creatures

2 Apr

Wherever I am, animals are always on my mind. My vacation to sunny Mexico graced me with the opportunity to encounter so many wondrous and beautiful creatures; even animals that I never imagined that I’d get to see in real life, let alone hold and touch some of them!  My heart was truly aflutter when I encountered the following critters… In order from above: a bee eater on the edge of the swim-up pool, the intimidating praying mantis, flirty tabby cat (one of the resort’s resident hunters), a sleepy baby leopard, a cute and clumsy baby striped tiger, a gaze of white nosed coatimundi (adorable members of the racoon family). Also seen during the trip, but not photographed: melodious blackbirds, iguanas, geckos and seven different types of fish while snorkeling in the fresh/salt water mix of the local marshlands.
