Cinnamon Hummingbird (Amazilia rutila) flying and feeding on a flower in Costa Rica.

Part 6/6 of my month down in Costa Rica leading a few photography workshops.

We had some really nice opportunities throughout the tours and many wonderful images were made.

Costa Rica is one of those countries that is just so pleasant to visit. Overall I would say that both trips were a huge success.

Everyone came away with lots of nice images, new techniques and a few new friends. What more can you ask for on a photo vacation?

After the trips were over I stayed on for a few days to go shooting with my friend Greg Basco. Greg helped me lead the second tour and we are going to be leading another trip together next year. We wanted to go scouting for some new locations and found a fantastic spot up in the dry northwest part of the country.

The lodge has some real gems hanging about like the Turquoise-browed Motmot, Cinnamon Hummingbird and at night a pair of Black and White Owls. Add in a trip or two to a nearby river and this area is going to be a great addition to next years trip!

If you think you might like to join me in Costa Rica next year be sure to send me an email as soon as possible.

All the best!
