As promised, here a a few shots of plants and animals from my visit to The Cayman Islands. All except one,taken with my DL and the kit lens. Jay

LOTS OF COCONUT PALMS (JUST HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT PARK YOUR RENTAL CAR UNDER--INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER DAMAGE FROM FALLING COCONUTS)!



COLORFUL STARFISH (SEA STARS?)




THE UNDERBELLY OF A STARFISH


TOOK THIS ONE WITH MY OPTIO 555 WHILE SNORKELLING USING THE AQUAPAC WATERPROOF POUCH. INSPITE OF IT, IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO TAKE PICTURES SINCE YOU COULD NOT SEE THE LCD SCREEN VERY WELL IN ORDER TO COMPOSE THE PICTURES. I GOT LUCKY ON THIS ONE!



AND LASTLY, SOME LAND CREATURES ENJOYING A QUIET MOMENT. THE LIGHTING WAS TOUGH (AFTER SUNSET)--THEREFORE I CONVERTED IT TO B&W AND WAS ABLE TO SALVAGE THE EXPOSURE.

Yeah and they become effectively canonballs in hurricanes.

Tourist like to see them most Key West locals consider them PITA WEEDS.... and not actually native trees either.

Hi Jay

Great series. You know we should organize a group Cruise to the Caribbean!!! Everyone Here would be invited. . Maybe hook up with Mtclimber.
We are Hitting the Eastern Caribean next April. San Juan, St Thomas and St Martien
I already cannot wait

Actually what I would be really interested in is a cruise with a photo workshop (or a photography theme). Another option would be the "on-location" workshops advertised by the N**** brand at some interesting locations. I also heard there is a cruise available from New Zealand to Antarctica on a converted Russian Ice Breaker. Now, that would be a trip to remember! All on my list of things to do before I die!!

Your trip to the E. Caribbean next April should be great. I hear that St. Marteen in great for taking pictures of approaching aircraft over Maho Beach!
