    Default Costa Rica 2009

    So here are my pictures from the trip (hopefully). It was an absolutely incredible trip. It ended up raining for our first 5 or 6 days. We saw a bunch of herps despite the cold weather and rain. I think we ended up with 41 species and some 3 new species for the reserve. I'm not going to include the names now but I will happily post them later.

    So thats my trip. Sorry for the obscenely large photos. I just got my DSLR 2 weeks before the trip and this was my absolute first time actually doing photography so i'm learning slowly. Try to guess the species and at some point i'll list them out for you.

    Enjoy,
    Alex
