photoblog image Costa Rican Wildlife

Costa Rican Wildlife

This is the same monkey from yesterday's photo. I was able to get several good shots of him before he disappeared into the trees. I love the expression on his face so much and all the detail that I couldn't resist posting a second shot of him.

I am off to Philadelphia for the rest of the week for a conference so I may not respond to comments for a few days. But thanks in advance.

Awesome close-up!

I was in Costa Rica in winter 2009 and I took many pictures of a sloth that would hang out by the hostel every night. Not that close though!

These close ups are wonderful, I love their expressions.

Great light in this image - I like the way he's looking away from the camera off into the wilderness.

He looks like he's seen it all before Charles: he's used to fame!
Have a good trip. He is a great little character

A very expressive ape !
Great detail. I don't know what it is about these monkeys, but they always look upset or pissed off!
What a nice little chap, is it just me, but the more I look at him the more I think of politics - and one politician in particular.
