Kefalonia Wildlife Photos

As a followup to my recent post on Kefalonia, Greece, I wanted to highlight how strikingly different the island looked in comparison to my mother’s island of Naxos that I visited the year before. What accounts for this difference is that Naxos is located on the Aegean Sea, resulting in a very dry climate (think southern California), while Kefalonia is located on the Ionian Sea and is thus sprawling with plant life that gives the island its wild feel. Ultimately, I took an interest in this wildlife and made sure to capture images of some of the more striking plants, while at the same time allow glimpses of the overall setting to peak through the background.
