Exotic terrapin

Permalink 15:00:59, Categories: Feral Species  

This terrapin is not the local species. The red/orange flash on the side of the face indicates an American origin. Unfortunately pet terrapins are dumped into the steams and ditches when expats leave the island or children loose interest in them. This one is a Red-eared Slider -Trachemys scripta elegans

Last weekend Abdulla took myself and some visitors from UAE to the southern section of the island. We got some nice photographs of the Sand Gazelles. Below are just two. The rut will soon be underway.

Couple of bad shots from saturday

Permalink 03:41:58 am, Categories: Feral Species, INSECTS, Native species  

Had the big lens on but while out looking for birds these beauties came into view - couldn't resist being an avid clickologist. Not the best photos a 500mm is hardly a macro and these were a bugger to focus on. However nice to see and record til I can get some decent shots.
