Participant Mary Elfman photographed this spectacular Red-headed Barbet, also on our Costa Rica tour. Though usually found in mixed-species flocks, bounding along branches in search of prey in dead leaves, these barbets can be tempted by feeding stations at several lodges!
Trogons in their elegance seem made for photography, and their tendency to sit quietly as they scan for prey helps photographers (and birders!) in their work. This female Collared Trogon posed for Jay Pruett on the Costa Rica tour.
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.
