There are abundant animals on the Iles du Salut, agoutis, chattering monkeys, shy peacocks and peahens. Green vines and shrubs cover every rock tenaciously, but few flowers poke their heads up. We were fascinated by a display of moving flora - there beneath our feet an army of ants marched, each bearing a little white flower that was larger than the ant. You can see them in the third photo above, striding along, in some ways not too different from the prisoners who labored carrying stones above them.
