Part 3/6 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.
From this lodge we travelled even further up in elevation to the Cerro de la Muerte region. For my other group this was the second stop that we made. On both groups we made a great stop off at a spot I know for Fiery-throated Hummingbirds along the way. They performed flawlessly!
Of course the star of the show in this area is always the Resplendent Quetzal. The magnificence of this bird can simply not be over-stated. They are without question one of the most beautiful birds in the world. Over the course of the time that my two groups were in the area we witnessed amazing natural history events in the life of the Quetzal. We saw the birds building nest cavities, feeding young and even saw the baby Quetzal on its first day out of the nest. Just incredible!!

All the best!
