|Another Anhinga - a type of cormorant|
Also this social Flycatcher just arrived and perched nicely on a flower bud for me.
|As you can see, he even has a raindrop about to drip off his beak|
I think this is quite a good shot of the mistiness, the combination of rain and sea spray. This is not a tourist beach; no deckchairs here. Black volcanic sand. No swimming here we were warned, on account of the sharks. And the Sting Rays. And none in the river in front of the hotel either. Crocodiles. Stick to the swimming pools. They are built for a reason.
So lunchtime and we filed back to the shelter of the dining room for lunch. From which we could see just a few yards in front of us on an overhanging a branch a large iguana., also taking shelter from the now quite torrential rain.
And just next to it, a heron similarly trying to get out of the worst of the precipitation.
As you can see, really torrential rain
After lunch I went briefly back to the beach.
But eventually even I decided the weather was too atrocious to stay out in it. We had torrential rain for 14 hours solid.spent most of it in my room, where the lighting was too poor to read easily, and there was no WiFi. And it was so damp that I could see my books and magazines fluffing up from the damp in the atmosphere. Happy to leave next morning, in the hope of finding somewhere drier.
