I was delighted with the pictures of Grenada as I was only there for 7 days, and furthermore, the weather was bad. So, I can imagine what I would have obtained had I been there longer and in better weather. I loved the island and the people and will return next time for a longer stay. I would like to photograph the flora and butterflies more next time, and the monkeys which I missed.

Grenada is certainly a complete unknown for wildlife and photography, but I had my best ever day photographing birds. That is mainly because the big birds such as herons and egrets were easy to photograph compared to birds in Europe, both because of their size and because they were so tame. I am sure they would appeal to many people, not just naturalists and birdwatchers, because they are quite exotic.

Anyway, I have sung the praises of the Island, I enjoyed the hotel and the staff were great, and I have now added a large number of pictures to my website, under Grenada.
