A small outbuilding in the tukul style in the backyard of one of my informants in the village of Galawdewos.
A fern frond on the slopes of Arenal Volcano.
A waterfall by a trail, in Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve. Nothing in the cloudforest really stays still for long enough to make a blurred-water shot, the result of dripping water, so the leaves near the top are blurred by motion almost as much as the waterfall.
The cone of Arenal Volcano seen during a clearing in a storm from the road just north of the town of La Fortuna. The volcano and surrounding jungle has made La Fortuna one of the country’s premier tourist draws, even as it has stopped spitting lava in recent years.
Some kind of large brown beetle high in the canopy, photographed from the hanging bridge in Monteverde National Park.

Vines twist together alongside a trail at Manuel Antonio National Park.
The bridge at the canopy layer reveals philodendrons, ferns, orchids, and other plants, all competing for precious real estate on an avocado tree.
