I took a much-needed holiday to Mexico’s Yucatan region last week. (Being about 10 miles out of Chicxulub is a great place to read news about meteors hitting the planet, let me tell you.)

Anyway, normal blogging service has already resumed but in the meantime, here are some wildlife + nature pics that I took on the trip. There should be a slideshow above, with back and forward buttons on the side of the big central image. The pics are also reproduced below.
