In March 2011 I travelled to Costa Rica with noted photographers jon holloway, Thomas Blagden and friends to photograph birds, wildlife and landscapes at the Arenal Volcano, Monteverde, Manuel Antonio and other areas.
Fortunately, I was able to see and photograph the lovely male Resplendent Quetzal, several species of hummingbird under difficult lighting, and other outstanding creatures and sights.
