Costa Rica 2017

Our last photography adventure for our very exciting 2017 was a return visit to Costa Rica. We visited, once again, the canopy walks in  Monteverde and went to the same butterfly and hummingbird spots as before; however, there were very few butterflies this year, and the vegetation generally was not as lush and colourful as our previous visit.

We covered new ground in the Tenorio area where we visited a beautiful waterfall at Rio Celeste and witnessed the deep aqua colour of the water here.  We also saw our first sloth and had fun photographing the very green, red eyed frog.

Our last stop was a few days in the Guanacaste area where we took a river boat trip at Palo Verde National Park, and we saw iguanas, monkeys (howler and capuchin), egrets, herons (tiger, green, blue and great blue), basilisk lizard and crocodile. We also took pictures of the sunset from a sailboat and over the beach/water from the hotel grounds.

Thanks for your visit. We look forward to posting more pictures in 2018!
