Arenal-Costa Rica

Arenal, the home of a volcano that last erupted 60 years ago! Sadly for us, there was a lot of cloud and we didn’t manage to fully see the volcano, but we did hike up to see the cloud surrounding it a little clearer!!

However, I was very excited on the way up as we saw the bird I most wanted to see….the Keel Billed Toucan……….

Those colours!

Now-in Europe we don’t see hummingbirds, so there was great excitement a brewing for me as I knew there would be lots……Here’s my first ever photo of a hummingbird….IN REAL LIFE!!

A Rufous-tailed hummingbird
Here’s a bedraggled one in silhouette after a heavy downpour!
When I first saw this bird I thought it was a cardinal, but then I thought it was a tanager….I’m still not positive but he was lovely all the same.
And apparently I’m partial to the Social Flycatcher who is all over the place in Costa Rica but very pretty with it!
And I suppose I need to include a photo of the half obscured volcano!

That’s All!

See Ya xx

Go on.....say something to me! You know you want to! Dot knows you want to too!
