The grackle’s voice is less than mellow,
His heart is black, his eye is yellow,
He bullies more attractive birds
With hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,
And should a human interfere,
Attacks that human in the rear.
I cannot help but deem the grackle
An ornithological debacle.

A Jungle Excursion   Leave a comment

Lizards-8-72After a few days on the beach, the jungle on down the shoreline peaked my interest,
so I left the beach scenery for the jungle scenery.

Lizards-6-72It wasn’t long before the shoreline became challenging big boulders alone the shore inhabited by a lot of lizards.
(Note the lizard on the near boulder.)

Lizards-5-72As I climbed over the boulders I kept looking for a path into the jungle. 

Lizards-7-72Finally there was an opening, but not much of a path.

Jungle-72In addition to thick growth and debris, there was a fence adding to my passage into the jungle.
Other than seeing a lot of lizards, my attempt to go into the the jungle on my own was uneventful.
So, I headed back to the beach scene.
