Costa Rica, frogs, snakes and the resplendant Quetzal.

I guess for me one of the best attractions about photographing in Costa Rica is the incredible variety of available and photogenic wildlife. As someone who has always kept reptiles and bred snakes for many years the attraction of the snakes is a headliner, there are very few trips that offer such beautiful, if deadly serpents.

When I think about the stunning frogs, bats and birds, not too mention a few mammals (which I didn't work with on this trip) the variety is certainly incredibly appealing.

This, the last blog of my recent trip to Costa Rica, features the birds and herptiles not mentioned in the first two blogs.
