Island, originally uploaded by Rick Elkins.

The original photographer notes that this island (called both Monkey Island and Pellew Island) off the shore of Jamaica was “a wedding present by the Aga Khan to his wife, Princess Nina. One history of the area says she had plans to keep tigers there … until she realized that they could swim.”

Great story, true or not!!

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
