Good vibes, good times at the Black Iguana

Summers are when we have some of the best weather here in Roatan. Temperatures rarely rise above 85° Fahrenheit (29° Celsius) and the constant sea breezes keep things cool, comfortable, and the insects at bay. In these photos guests enjoy a balmy summer afternoon at the Black Iguana beach bar on Bliss Beach.

a photographic study of the beach spider lily

In August, after the July showers, the beach spider lilies (Hymenocallis littoralis) bloom all over the beachy areas of the property. They remind me of fireworks going off in slow motion. I find the flower pods to be just as beautiful as the delicate lilies that eventually emerge from them.

Delicate yet strong hexagonal symmetry. Six stronger-than-steel filaments hold up large pollen anthers.

Pollen must enter and navigate down this narrow stigma for fertilization to occur. Amazing!

frolicking in the beautiful garden by the sea

My friends Ana, Claudia and Fede came for a visit a few days ago. I took these photos as they enjoyed various areas (and various aspects) of Paya Bay. They granted me permission to share these captures of their Paya Experience on the blog.
