These are great and inducing relaxation,ValeryD. :D

Cuba has such a fragile and untouched natural environment at the moment thanks to more protective measures of their government. Hope the natural life continues to be just as abundant and colourful after they integrate more with the 'modern' World. Fingers crossed.
Happy resting and hope to see more of Cuba through your lenses. :)

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Aster Thank you!

I have way more shots from Cuba. I had with me only a57 and not expensive lenses for reason if I could drop the camera on the sand or lost the camera. :)
But in the last vacation I been little upset. I can't find a car for rent! Had some plan to drive in east site of the Cuba, but in this days they have so many touristes. Basically, we all the time renting the car and spend 2-3 days for traveling, not only be in a resort.

Wonderful set Valery. So who won the battle of giants? :lol:
Hopefully in next few years I will have a chance to visit Cuba.

It was a draw in both battles. At the moment when I started taking pictures, the puppy left the crab and the crab was again buried in the sand. :)

Nice photos of the various wildlife. Is that a fighting cock?

Lovely photos, ValeryD. :)

Scenes that one can't see in many other countries...What exactly is happening in the first photo with that small animal on the woman's left shoulder and a crown being placed on her head? A rather odd combination of elements. : )

Thnaks for sharing,

I'm not really sure, but the animals looks like nutria and acting like a cat or dog, very friendly.

:D What can I say ? You've been to some interesting places and colourful events, ValeryD !

I actually loved all your photos from this collection: the cave with an actual river running through is like a time passage to ancient times. I also had a look at your Gallery and all shots are very interesting.

Thanks for sharing,

Yildiz
