Costa Rica critters

Since my hand surgery I have not been taking new photos so I am showing some of my favorite Costa Rica critters from my archives. We went to Costa Rica in March of 2010 and I loved it there. The critters, birds and scenery were all wonderful.  These shots are from a wildlife refuge cruise at Cano Negro, it was a river cruise that that took us to the border of Nicaragua. The photos were taken from a moving boat so they are not the best quality.

 You can click on the photos for a larger image.


















   It was neat to see this monkey hanging from the tree eating the flowers.




















This guy looks all pooped out, doesn't he?
 
















                                    

  AWWWW , look at the shy little baby, isn't it cute? He is hiding by his momma's neck.

Water Buffalo, they produce milk that makes mozzarella cheese.


                                          Bats all lined up, they blend in well with the tree.


            
   
                                                                                    

                                       This Blond Howler Monkey was one of my favorite sightings. I believe the blond howler monkey is more of a rare sighting.


Please visit Misty Dawn's Camera Critters to see more cute critters. Thanks to Misty Dawn for hosting and thanks for stopping by to see my critters.  Have a great weekend!

  6. I would never have noticed those bats on my hike!!
    I remember well, the howler monkeys during my stay in Costa Rica - not very restful - but never saw a blond one.

  11. What an exciting trip you must have had.
    I can do without the bats - I'll never fully like them. :)
    But, I love that Howler monkey!
    Just to see all this in the wild would make an exciting adventure.
