    This morning's walk to town. It is about 1 km and takes about 20 minutes (almost all downhill). Return trip takes 40 minutes!
    All taken with EPL1 and P14mm, except #1 was with P45-175.

    The house of one of our neighbors. Modest but neat and clean.

    Nice shots!

    I was in Costa Rica for two weeks over Christmas in 2010... we stayed in a house on Playa Grande near Tamarindo. Just stunning. Drove inland to Monteverde to see the cloud forest... it was a great trip, and a great country (what little of it we saw). I'd love to go back.

    I like this shot, but it kinda scares me too...it just seems like that house is on a borrowed time agreement with that mountain side.

    Saw this guy today while hiking. It is called a "Jesus Christ Lizard" because it can stand erect and actually run across water. Odd thing though, references say that it is found below 3000 ft here in Costa Rica. One reference says 2000. This image was taken at well over 5000 ft. strange. Taken with EPL1, P45-175.

    These guys are called parakeets here in Costa Rica. However,they are considerably larger than the pet store variety in the U.S. They travel in flocks of 20 or more. As they fly they all chatter making them anything but stealth. We see numerous flocks of these most every day.
