Staying up too late once again to process a few selects from this juvenile Grand Cayman Agouti portrait shoot arranged with its caretaker and surrogate mother, Denise Bodden. This may be my favorite frame shot right in the corner of my tiled living room, where I created a natural looking setting from materials found just outside. This little guy seems quite happy to be mothered by Denise! Agouti's, AKA Cayman Rabbit, are extremely shy in nature as they are still sometimes hunted as food.

Man, I've never seen a baby one before! Any time you want to shoot some larger ones, come by the house. Sometimes we spot two or three hanging out in the back garden and wooded area.

Great shot!

What a little sweetie! Denise showed me this little wild Agouti last week - beginning of June - as she called in at the UKOT Conservation Conf[UK Overseas Territories] held at the Westin. Some of the visitors were thrilled to see the threatened Cayman Agouti species.
First time I had seen one. Looks to be doing good being cared for by Denise. Lilian
