Turtle Ballet by Linda Richter

Turtle Ballet

Turtle Ballet
Graceful underwater, the Green sea turtles of Bonaire seem to glide with gentle motions of their flippers. A subtle twist and they soar away into the depths. If a snorkeler or scuba diver comes to a stop, a curious sea turtle has been known to approach, maybe trying to figure out what oddity has entered the ocean.

A red macaw has ruffled up his neck feathers and pulled his head back. His full attention is dead center and right on you. “Well?” he seems to ask, “What do you want?” He has not quite decided if you are bothering him yet.

The red macaw is a Red-and-green Macaw, also known as the Green-winged Macaw (Ara chloropterus).

Poison Arrow frogs in various colors hide along the rain forest floor. The tiny frogs have been greatly enlarged to show the drama of their form and color. Each is solitary in its own frame and yet they are part of the whole environment. “If you are a frog lover like I am, you can’t resist these little cuties.”
