MORE RICHES OF COSTA RICA

Some comments about last week’s photos from Costa Rica:

Fabulous photos.  The colors are amazing and catching the snake coiled is brilliant. Merry H.

From Donna W.: This (Costa Rica) is where I want to go to photograph hummingbirds.

Costa Rica is blessed with natural riches, from cloud forests to rain forests to beaches and wildlife. In October I spent 10 days there with photographer Juan Pons visiting different areas to photograph Costa Rica’s spectacular wildlife. All of the photos below were taken by Bill Popik.

This little beauty is an Eyelash Pit Viper. Those little bumps are the “eyelashes” and are thought to be useful by breaking up the outline of the viper when it is hiding in foliage. The “eyelashes are easier to see in the photo below.

This Red-Eyed Tree Frog isn’t venomous. These cute little frogs are common in the lowland forests of Costa Rica and the rest of Central America.

I assume these turtles know what they’re doing.


We were in a small boat on a river when we spotted this Capuchin Monkey in the trees. He did his very best to look threatening but mostly he looked ridiculous. We wouldn’t have felt that way if we had been close to him on land.

HAVE A GOOD WEEK!
