Perky Pelican

As I was walking along the Cinta Costera I caught sight of this perky pelican hanging out in a tree.  He seemed to be looking out over the water contemplating the horizon or maybe he was scanning the water for his next meal.  Who knows. The important thing is that I was carrying my camera and was able to capture him on film.

A Four Legged Resident of Casco Antiguo

On one of my recent visits  to Casco Antiguo I was greeted by this cute little pooch, who stuck his head through the wrought iron railings and peered down at me as I walked by. He seemed to want to come down to the street and have some fun.  Well, friends, whether you have four legs or only two, Casco Antiguo is definitely a place to have fun and enjoy yourself.

The High Price of Progress

As Panama grows and progresses, we must not forget that we share this paradise with other species. This little fellow seems to be contemplating the encroaching buildings. Progress always comes with a price tag. Hopefully our wildlife will not pay the price.
