Hi there my Steemit friends and followers!
As I decided to dedicate my Monday posts to promoting interesting Steemians that you might want to follow through my new series called @phortun´s Monday Spotlight, I will not be competing in the Monday animal photography contest any more.
But you know how much I love animals and nature and I just cannot stop posting this kind of content :) Therefore, I prepared something special for you today (and the next Saturday). I compiled a selection of 40 wildlife photos that I have taken in the Caribbean (to be more specific - in Mexico, Costa Rica, Cuba, Florida and the Dominican Republic).
Not to overwhelm you with just too many animal photos all at once, however, I decided to split the selection into two parts, each featuring 20 photos. You might already know some of them as they have appeared on my blog before but there will also be many photos that I have not published on Steemit yet.
All of the animals featured in this series were photographed in their natural environment (no zoos or anything like this). Some of them were just too fast (or dangerous) for me to be able to focus my camera properly on them, which is why some of the photos are of poor quality. Sorry about that. I am not a professional wildlife photographer and I use just my cell phone camera. Hopefully, you will still like and enjoy this little wildlife photoseries :)
Here is the first part.

If you liked these photos, stay tuned for the second part of this series that will be posted next Satruday ;) Have a fantastic weekend and keep on Steeming my friends!
