I must say again an impressive sharing from DrFumblefinger’s side. I really like to read your published blog posts. Moreover your collection of photographs that you have shared with us is amazing. I love such kind of natural spots to see the beauty of this world. I will be free after my seaworld adventure parks I would like to go there and capture the sights of this region in my own camera.

Bee-eaters are amazing birds. I've never seen more than one or two around, so it must be quite a treat to be at the edge of a migration of them! And they fly so quickly -- amazed you were able to get that last photo framed as well as you did. Thanks for sharing these.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, April 6, 2015: Turtle Watching in Trinidad

GarryRF ·
I've only seen a turtle in captivity. How big are these handsome fellows? I believe that those bred in zoo's don't achieve full size. Is it true they have no predators other than man? I've read of capsized sailors surviving on turtles because they store desalinated water in their stomach .
