what a beautiful lizard!  he moved so slowly and deliberately, posing and watching me with both independent eyes so intently.  about 6-8″ long without his very long tail, which had to be close to a foot!

this is a trogon – try to zoom in on him.  Really a tough one to get a good picture of, but these birds are quite large – up to 10″, the renowned Quetzals are in this family, but we were quite thrilled to see this one!

unfortunately these towers are being installed at an insane rate across this country, marring the beautiful countryside and imposing their lethal frequencies on all of us.  ho hum, everyone here has a cell phone…demand is big, thus the towers are everywhere, in huge swaths – miles of them.

Author: Elena in the Jungle

Living a very simple reclusive and self sustaining life way out in the jungle with my husband, growing as much food and medicinal plants as possible, I find my freedom and sanctuary in the amazing and spectacular array of life that surrounds me, gifts of Gaia, most especially while traveling around on my horse.
