[Here are parts 2
In January I went to Costa Rica to take photos of the incredible wildlife. What an amazing place. I went to three different areas to see what I could find. There’s so much more to explore there and the more I’ve photographed, the more I’ve realised how I’ve barely scratched the surface. I’ll definitely have to go back.
Now then, this trip wouldn’t be complete without a toucan!

Or indeed a humming bird:

Or a tree frog. This one’s sleepy during the day. How cute?!
