Saturday's Critters # 484

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Hello and happy Saturday!

 If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!

More from Puerto Vallarta Mexico on March 6th, these images are from a tour of the city area and the Malecon walkway near the waterfront. Below you will see I am sharing some critter statues from Puerto Vallarta. 


1. Mosaic below is from our walk near the waterfront, on the Malecon walkway, the various sculptures and the nearby Cathedral. 




2. The sculpture of the rider on the Seahorse.





3. I love this dolphin sculpture. 





4. Tropical Kingbirds are seen all over the place. 





5. Brown Pelicans are another common bird we saw in Puerto Vallarta. 





6. A horse was outside a Coffee Factory we visited. 





7. The dog was hanging around outside too. 





8. Along with all the sculptures on the Malecon, we found these Rocking Horses. 




Our guide and tour was through Puerto Vallarta Discovery, he was a great guide and I was happy to hear that he and his wife and her family have land and built nest boxes set high in trees to help the Military Macaws. 

"It's never too late to start birding."

  9. Hello Eileen :=)
    The statue of the Dolphins caught my eye straight away, it is lovely, but the crown shape image on top of the building is very attractive too, the dancing duo. and also the Seahorse with rider. The Tropical King Bird is beautiful, and you were fortunate to see it often. I think the cute dog wants a tummy rub:=) I'm glad the tethered horse had some shade, and the horses with bright painted saddles are fun rides for kids.
    Have a lovely weekend, and thank you for hosting Eileen.

  39. So much to love here. The dolphin statue is lovely and just that there are so many statues is sort of a surprise. You always meet dogs, usually more than one, in Mexico where they all seem to know how to take care of themselves while running free.

  45. I like your pictures so much and they brought back some memories for sure. -- we spent a week there once long ago (before digital, before blogging, before I was really into birds). More recently we spent several hours there on a stopover on our Panama Canal Cruise.

  50. Eileen, yes, never too late to start birding. More and more people need to get out into nature and start appreciating the beauty around them. That's when we will be able to value this planet.

  51. Um destino turístico que adorei conhecer através das suas fantásticas imagens, Eileen!
    Terão sido uns dias muito bem passados! Grata por tão especial partilha! Adorei passear através das suas belas fotos!!!
    Beijinhos! Bom fim de semana... já que ele está quase a chegar! Os dias voam... esta semana mal dei por ela... com algumas saídas extra, aproveitando os dias de sol, para fazer mãe sair de casa... depois de mais um Inverno bem caseiro... mas desde a pandemia, que o mundo ficou um lugar bem mais arriscado para os velhotes! E contra isso... nada a fazer!... :-(
    Tudo de bom! Continuação de dias felizes e bem passados!
