Costa Rica – bug, birds, plants


We saw nature everywhere we went, from the area around Poas volcano, to the beach ridge, and near Arenal.  But we saw the most diversity and interesting stuff in Monteverde, where we were blessed to have a guided tour of the Cloud forest  with Koky, a guide associated with Hidden Canopy treehouse (where we were staying).  he was an absolute delight and worth every cent – he even taught us how to take better pictures with our cell phones !
