This grey heron really got around! We saw him everywhere. And every evening he would fly off, not sure where he was heading, but sure enough the next day he was back on the beach.
I fell in love with these little guys! They were just so adorable shuffling around in the sand, ducking their heads in their shell whenever you would walk past.
Now these ghost crabs were amazing. They would come out at dusk and spend the entire night digging holes in the sand in search for food.
It took a whole lot of patience and standing still in order to get some pics.
We were even able to capture some video of them but Mr. Milk accidentally deleted it :(
Stingrays were everywhere.
As you can see, this little guys (it was a baby stingray) was right along the shore. His eyes are even popping out of the water here.
Here's a bigger one, further into the water.
What you can see hanging onto the tree is a fruit bat! Those things are huge! It looks like a medium sized bird with bat-wings.
Here you can see it in mid-flight.
And these guys were by far my favorite. I small family of birds that hung around our villa every day. We felt like we had adopted them.
I love this photo. The mommy bird is feeding the chicks some coconut.
There was a bunch more underwater wildlife that we saw while we were snorkeling, but unfortunately we didn't have an underwater camera to capture it all. But as one of the hotel staff said, you could see the entire cast of Finding Nemo in there!
