Costa Rica Critters

I do love a good bug and Costa Rica has a lot to offer. One of our traveling companions is a professional quality photographer, I hope she shares her pictures with me so I can then share them with you...she go some great critter shots.

I killed what seemed like a million millipedes
Countless cockroaches
The boys caught and froze everything they could...wish I got a picture of that for you

Here are a few-

Now this, I don't know what to say about it. Some were under the impression it was a worm/slug of some sort. If you ask me, this is a poop and pee pile left on our doorstep by some unknown mammal.

Some shots, like the following few are from a Reptile Exhibit we visited

Dogs everywhere!!

Wild at the Manuel Antonio National Park

There's not trick photography here -

these little guys were this close!

Sloth in the wild!!

Poor little tailless Iguana visitor at the beach

That is my Dear Husbands hand...

I really loved the spiders!

Plants, Tree and such

You wouldn't think one would be amazed by the size of vegetation in CR coming from the land of Giant Redwood tree however this one was!

The colors are so vibrant!

View & Sunsets

These pretty much speak for themselves...most (all) are from where we spent most of our time.

Believe it or not, we got a sunset every night we were there!

Kind of pretty don't you think?
