I’ve been a writer for, oh, my entire life (at least it feels like it), so my photos are always an afterthought, and I run them pretty small on my blog. For my New Year’s resolution, I’ve vowed to stop doing that. I’ve been pretty (really) lazy about improving the technical side of taking photos, but I still have some favorites that I’m going to roll out over the next few days leading up to the New Year. For Day One, I’m going to start with the cheap shots: animals. Who can resist? The howler monkeys shown here woke me up almost every single morning during my year in Costa Rica, usually before five am. Curious as to how they sound and how loud they really are? Click here! Warning: they don’t sound as cute as they look!
Except for the one Nicaragua monkey photo, all of the photos here were taken in Costa Rica, where I lived for a year.
A crocodile comes a little too close to our boat on the Tempisque River in Palo Verde.
A white-faced monkey during the same river boat tour.
A camouflaged iguana at my neighbor’s house in Coco.
The smallest scorpions sting the worst!
My little Jax is exhausted (and coming down off drugs) after getting fixed. I was so proud of him! For the story, click here.
A hanging monkey on Lake Nicaragua. For more on that trip, click here.
My first tarantula! If you think I handled this calmly (or could stop screaming long enough to take this photo), click here.
While walking alone on a deserted beach near Puerto Viejo, I came across these horses.
