    Back from Costa Rica

    Hello all,

    It was a great vacation, but it is good to be home again. If you want to go to a photographers dream vacation, go to Costa Rica. I had talked of the Quetzal before I left. Once we got to the Monte Verde Cloud Forest National Reserve I found out that they are rare to see. They were there that day though and we saw them. However, I forgot my glasses at the hotel and couldn't focus for anything so here is the best I could get on autofocus. It truely is a beautiful bird when it is in front of you.

    Welcome back and great to hear that Photographic Opportunities abound on vacation. That's always great for the photographer ...a little hard on the photographer's Significant Other.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Thanks Don, yes she does get frustrated sometimes. Now it will be some time while I go through the many many photos. Costa Rica is a really great place, the colorful birds, and plants. Monte Verde has over 800 species of orchids alone.

    That clip's hilarious. Know now where Flatley got his inspiration.

    First, welcome back Peek.

    Here are two monkey pics. First a Howler Monkey, we saw a small group when traveling between Arenal and Monte Verde. Secondly, a Capuchin Monkey taken during our walk through Manuel Antonio National Park.
    If you want the specs on either let me know. Also the Capuchin Monkey photo is uncropped, I looked at cropping it but liked it as is.
