Up the tree branches, the monkeys were not the only ones that were getting a lot of attention from two-legged camera-toting humans. The birds, particularly the toucans, were very much the attraction, especially in the early morning up to after breakfast.
So I beg your indulgence if I allot a whole post for just birds and butterflies.
Can you see me? I camouflage well :)
Take your shot now or I shall fly away!
Sitting in a tree ... K.I.S.S.I.N.G!
I asked why we never sighted the parrots and the macaws, equally colorful birds, in the vicinity. I was told that these birds mostly live in the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. We are in the Caribbean side.
This looks like a woodpecker to me. Any one can confirm this?
Surprises definitely come in small packages, a sweet wren is spotted.
This one I totally have not seen before.
Got lucky with capturing the hummingbird as it feeds.
The wrap-around balcony was the spot where I took most of the butterfly images. I loved my "me" time shooting at the butterflies. As I look back, I can't remember why I had a "me" time.
And as a bonus, I found another shot of the land crab. Here it is.
Isn't it cute?
