Spider Monkeys are one of four species of monkey in Costa Rica. We saw a few troops during our stay – trying to get a decent photograph of them was an exercise more difficult than I imagined it would be. Their speed through the canopy, the infuriating habit of my auto-focus to grab anything but focus on the subject and the relatively low light levels didn’t help in this regard.
A precursor to a series of pictures taken on a recent holiday/vacation. Just had the privilege of spending some time in the Central American country of Costa Rica. We had a great time, despite being without our suitcases for the first three days…. surprising how resourceful you can be when necessary!
Our trip was a tour, with time in Tortuguero, Arenal, Monteverde and Tamarindo. We were transported between locations by mini-bus/shuttle, over some pretty dodgy roads sometimes, but it all added to the sense of adventure.
