Cobweb Morpho (Morpho deidamia) is a fairly common but lovely butterfly we often see in forest gaps in Costa Rica. Jay Pruett snapped this image on our recent tour there.
Even when soggy, owls intrigue us. Spectacled Owl's reverberating voice (hence its genus name, Pulsatrix) is often heard at night in tropical forests, but birds on day roosts are difficult to find. Photograph by Costa Rica participant Jay Pruett.
If Talamanca Hummingbird sounds unfamiliar, that's probably because you know it as Magnificent Hummingbird -- which was recently split into two species: Rivoli's Hummingbird (found from Arizona to Nicaragua) and Talamanca Hummingbird, found only in Costa Rica and a bit of western Panama.
