Photos of the Week # 2

This Mexican Hairy Porcupine Coendou mexicanus was about 35 feet up a small tree snoozing along the Rio Colorado at about 1900m. They are nocturnal and when you spot one during the day they don’t do much but look down on you with sleepy eyes as this one did.

A slight rain falling while sitting silently in the shadows. A Green Violet Ear hummingbird feeds on the white tipped red tubular flowers on this extensive vine that was just inside the forest at about 1940m.  No pics of the hummingbird, just this riot of blossoms many of them just a few feet off the ground.
