Re: **weekly wildlife 4-14, 4-20***

I don't normally post in this thread, and I'm not nearly as skilled as some of the great wildlife photographers here, but I was down in Mexico last week and in a hotel next to a bird sanctuary, so I figured why not take a few pictures.

All with A65 and Tamron SP 70-300 USD, except for the iguana (kit lens) and turtles (35/1.8).

Pelican

Sandpiper, I think

Male Frigatebird

Female Frigatebird

Another male Frigatebird.  I was on the 10th floor of the hotel, they liked to rid the air current up the side of the hotel.

Spoonbill.  From 10 stories up and at least a 1/4 mile away, pretty heavy crop.

Not sure what kind of bird, but nice looking

This iguana was in the same spot all week

Sea turtle hatchling.  The resort we stayed at had a hatchery, and you could sign up to help release the days newly hatched turtles into the sea at sunset.  Great fun and my kids loved it.

There they go!

Thanks for looking!
