Most of the garitas in these forts have been repaired to some extent to preserve them for future generations. This one, which still had its old patina, was my favorite to photograph.

For the first stint of our trip we stayed in San Juan, which was really fun for me because last time I was here we spent all of our time on the southern part of the Island. There are many amazing things to see in San Juan and I was disappointed to not be able to photograph them last time. This shot is a double rainbow that appeared late in the evening from the beach where we were staying.

A large tree snail in the rainforest. These things were everywhere, and quite large too. They were probably 3-4 inches in diameter.

I heard the beautiful song of this pearly eyed thrasher in this tree, but the foliage was so dense it took me a few minutes to locate it.

I spotted this Grey Kingbird sitting in a bush and spent a good half hour photographing it as it flew to different perches.
