Costa Rica

My dream has been to go to Costa Rica and see the scarlet macaws in the wild.  That dream was realized.  Plus, I got to see and photograph some other things there.  The first pictures are from Drake Bay on the Osa Peninsula.

Can’t be in Costa Rica without seeing a reptile.   Chameleon watching the tourists

Juvenile caracara was not bothered by us at all. Its mother was a bit upset, though.

We went from the Corcovado jungle to the Monteverde Cloud Forest.  Now that’s a trip.

This motmot was right next to a cafe on the main road.

Everyone in Costa Rica wants to see the elusive bell bird. Its boing sound is captivating.

Of course I have more pictures to post.
