Photo of the Week: Hot Springs

IMG_6199La Fortuna, Costa Rica

This picture was taken at the Tabacón  hot springs – located at the northern base of Arenal Volcano. The geothermal springs are heated naturally by the magma found in the earth’s core. The mineral-rich natural springs are surrounded by lush tropical foliage and serene cascading waterfalls creating a paradise setting, perfect for relaxation after a long day of trekking through the rainforest.

Photo of the Week: Reptilian

IMG_0618Playa Conchal, Costa Rica

We were sitting on our balcony in Costa Rica,  when we were surprised by some movement in the grass and saw this guy come out to sun himself.  Iguanas are indigenous to this region and they tend to congregate together.  Did you know that a group of iguanas are called a slaughter?  Me neither, had to look that one up.  Iguanas are cold-blooded lizards, so it’s not unusual to see them come out during the day to warm up under the blazing sun.  Sitting there with its green-hued scales and prickly spines, this one reminded me of a dragon.

Photo of the Week: In Flight

IMG_0641La Fortuna, Costa Rica

This picture of a hummingbird in flight was taken in the small village of La Fortuna in Costa Rica. This volcanic region is known for its tropical rainforest, beautiful waterfalls, and natural hot springs.  There is tons of wildlife in this fertile area, and walking around town you can see the humming birds buzzing around, feeding on the flowers.
