This nosy fellow perched on a palm frond to eavesdrop on our conversation as I sat in a palapa restaurant in La Manzanilla, Mexico. Click on photo to enlarge.
I tried to capture this fellow in this pose several times but he’d flown away by the time I got my camera out. This morning he granted me the favor of a last visit and stood still long enough for me to capture this shot and a number of others—first a few of his mate, whom he replaced when she flew away—and then of him. I’m finally home. There is no place like it!!!

All day long, I gobble gobble.
Strut my stuff over the cobble
proud and straight, without a wobble,
until a man comes with a hobble.
I’d tell the rest if I were able,
Instead, I’m laid out on your table!

These photos were, alas, taken with my phone, and so the resolution isn’t very good. I was parked waiting for a friend and this little guy just happened to fly up to the hibiscus bush right beside my driver’s side window, so I had to snap these. Lucky in the pose, unlucky with the camera available. My new camera is on its way!!!
