Outdoors for the Week

This week I will be attempting to use my collection of photos and videos from my trip to Belize.

These first photos are from the Iguana reserve. This place is incredible and I’d recommend it to anyone going to visit.

Don’t mind me and my lack of photogenic ability… this guy was big, heavy and content to just lay in my hands.

 

Of course, conserving nature is always a positive endeavor… when nature presents itself without the help of man, I  I feel compelled to record it.

I stepped out on the balcony of our hotel one morning to find this ginormous creature.

Being able to see something like this is… unexplainably exciting for me.

You may disagree but nature, in all its facets, is fascinating to me.

Perhaps I should have been an entomologist or biologist, or perhaps I’ll just be happy considering myself an amateur one.

This, ladies and gentleman, is a tarantula hawk. Although this one was the size of a hummingbird (they come in all different sizes) they are a type of wasp, not a bird.

You can read all about them here.
