common goldeneye


ok I know these are grainy af, but this little guy was kinda far for my sad little lens. I watched him through my binos for a good half an hour and it was THE CUTEST. He was diving for food a bunch and every once and a while he would scoot across the water, idk if he was trying to fly or what but it was the highlight of my little trip to the park today. He looked so determined to be a good duck.

Jamaican Plant :: ROYAL POINCIANA TREE (Delonix regia) is native to Madagascar. The brilliant red blooms of this tree are so spectacular, it’s also known in some Latin American countries as the Flamboyant or Flame tree. If you have a large yard, the Poinciana is a wonderful shade tree with its unique feathery leaves. The Poinciana is perfect for Jamaica’s subtropical coastal area: it is drought and salt tolerant. It usually blooms between May and July. | Photo taken at Goldeneye Hotel & Resort
